  • All parents of English learners are welcome to participate in their school site English Language Advisory Committee. This group meets at least four times a year at each school and provides valuable input for ongoing program improvement. Parents additionally receive information about curriculum, instruction, program evaluation, and budget related to English learners. For more information contact your school site or ELD Specialist/Coordinator listed under, "Whom can I contact if I have questions?"

District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC)

  • All parents of English learners are also encouraged to participate at the district level at our DELAC meetings. The district-level English Learner Advisory Committee is comprised of parents, staff, and community members designated to advise district officials on English learner programs and services. This group provides valuable input for ongoing program improvement across the district for services related to English learners. 

    DELAC dates and agendas can be found on the DELAC meetings tab.

    *Under the LCFF, districts with at least 50 English learners and whose total enrollment includes at least 15% English learners must establish a DELAC, and that DELAC must carry out specific responsibilities related to the LCAP.
