English Learners and ELAC

BVH – English Learners and ELAC

English Learners in the Sweetwater district are provided with a variety of support services to help them master California State Content Standards and improve their proficiency in the English Language.

Each California public school, grades kindergarten through 12, with 21 or more English learners must form an English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). The purpose of the ELAC is to advise the principal and school staff on programs and services for English learners, and the School Site Council on the development of the Single School Plan for Student Achievement. The percentage of parents of English learners on the committee must be at least the same as that of English learners at the school.

English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

The English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) is a committee for parents or other community members who want to advocate for English Learners. The overall aim of ELAC is to advise the school staff and School Site Council on programs and services for English Learners and contribute to the development of the SPSA. ELAC meetings are public meetings. Parents are welcome to attend all meetings throughout the year. If you would like to join or attend our ELAC meetings, please contact the school’s main office at (619) 397-2000.
