English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

ELAC Requirements 

The English Learner Advisory Committee addresses issues specifically related to English Learners and advises the principal, the school staff, and the School Site Council (SSC) on programs and services for English Learners to assure the needs of EL students are being met. Each school with 21 or more English Learners is required to have an ELAC. The percentage of EL parents on the committee must match the percentage of EL students at the school. Parents of non-EL students may also be on this committee.

The committee will review English Learner data and programs. They also will make recommendations to the principal, school staff and the SSC.

ELAC is not required to meet monthly, but should meet no fewer than 4 times per year in order to become familiar with and comment on the four training topics.


For the 2020-2022 school years, our Pomeroy ELAC and SSC committees will be merged.
