ELAC is a group of parents and school staff that meet to talk about issues that affect students who are learning English (English Learners). ELAC’s objective is to provide staff, parents, and students a vehicle for addressing school concerns regarding programs and services for English Learners and to facilitate a two-way communication system between the school and the community.
