English Learner Advisory Committee

Evergreen Union School District
Evergreen Elementary School
English Learner Advisory Committee

Evergreen Elementary School is a school site with 21 or more English Learners.  Therefore, there is an English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC), and it attends to the following responsibilities.
  • Parent members are elected by parents or guardians of ELs.
  • Parents of ELs constitute at least the same percentage of the committee membership as their
children represent the student body.
  • The ELAC shall be responsible for assisting in the development of the schoolwide needs assessment and ways to make parents aware of the importance of regular school attendance.
  • The ELAC shall advise the principal and staff in the development of a site plan for ELs and submit the plan to the school site council for consideration for inclusion in the School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA).
  • The ELAC receives training materials and training, planned in full consultation with committee members, to assist members in carrying out their legal responsibilities. (California Education Code [EC] sections 52176, 62002.5; Title 5, California Code of Regulations [5 CCR] Section 11308)
Each ELAC has the opportunity to elect at least one member to the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) or participants in a proportionate regional representation scheme when there are 31 or more ELACs in the local educational agency (LEA). (5 CCR Section 11308[b])  Evergreen Union School District does not have 51 or more English Learners, and therefore, does not have a District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) at this time.
