English Learner Advisory Council
Each California public school with 21 or more English learners must form an English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). The ELAC is a school-level committee comprised of parents, staff, and community members designated to advise school officials on English learner programs and services.
The ELAC is responsible for the following tasks:
- Advising the principal and staff in the development of a site plan for English learners and submitting the plan to the School Site Council for consideration of inclusion in the School Plan for Student Achievement.
- Assisting in the development of the schoolwide needs assessment.
- Ways to make parents aware of the importance of regular school attendance.
- Each ELAC shall have the opportunity to elect at least one member to the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC).
School Site Council
The School Site Council (SSC) is comprised of both school and parent/community members and is responsible for developing the content of the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). SSCs review and update, on an annual basis, the proposed expenditures detailed in the SPSA. SPSAs are then reviewed and approved by the TUSD Board of Trustees.
