English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

The purpose of the English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) is to provide education for parents of English Learners about the programs at ECA that serve English Learners and to provide an opportunity for enhancing the partnership between the school and parents of English Learners.

Teacher leaders of ELAC in 2012-2013 school year included Ms. Rodriguez and Ms. McManus. We welcome anyone interested in English Language Learner (ELL) education. Parents of English Learners at our school are invited to participate as members of an advisory group to:

  • Advise, review and comment on the development of the school’s programs for English Learners at the school site, including the expenditure of Title III and EIA funds.
  • Assist in the development of the Needs Assessment Document for English learners, resulting in a written plan that assesses their needs.
  • Promote among parents the importance of student regular attendance at school.



Meetings are held in conjunction with School Site Council, at 3:30 p.m. in Room 114. Spanish-English translation is available.

The 2012-2013 school year schedule is combined with SSC.
