An English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC) must be formed whenever a school has over 21 or more EL students. The ELAC must meet at least quarterly to discuss issues relative to the success of English learners. The ELAC also completes a needs assessment on an annual basis to identify areas of need or areas where additional information is needed. Each school is to nominate a District English Language Advisory Committee Member (DELAC) that would attend district level meetings and bring back and share district level information to their own school community as well as bring issues, concerns or needs to the DELAC.
In addition to the School Site Council (SSC), other school or district councils or committees are required under certain circumstances. A major difference between the SSC and advisory committees is that the District Governing Board is the final decision-making body regarding programs with advisory committees. The advisory committee has no program or budget authority, but makes recommendations to the school and Board for consideration. The SSC should be aware of the other advisory committees and should develop a means for good communication, since the decisions of the SSC will affect the students throughout the school. Such advisory committees in the Clovis Unified School District Learner Advisory Committee, the District Migrant Education Parent Advisory Council, the School and District level School Assessment Review Team (SART), and the District Indian Education Parent Advisory Committee.
