English Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC)
The Elk Grove Unified School District has an English Learners Advisory Committee that consists of representatives from schools in the district. A majority of members of the committee are parents of students who are English Learners. The ELAC annually approves the plans for English Learners, both at the district level and at the school site. They also approve the annual census of LEP students and participate in the annual needs assessment. Information regarding student performance, student services, and site level needs for EL students is gathered throughout the year. The priority for all schools is focused on the identified site level needs such as after school assistance with homework, tutoring and additional materials, instructional supplies and books that reflect the culturally related academic needs of students. Additionally, the Elitha Donner ELAC Committee has designated as priority to (1) Meet monthly to Increase parent participation, and (2) to provide support to the adult learners through such activities as Parenting and Adult and Community Education classes. We welcome any parents of English Learners to participate in the Elitha Donner Elementary School English Learners Advisory Committee.
