What is ELAC?
More than 100 students at Lafayette speak a language other than English at home and are not yet fluent in English. These students are our English Learners. The English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) is established to advise the Principal, School Site Council, and school staff on programs and services that benefit Lafayette’s English learners and best practices that benefit all students. Parents of both English learners and fluent English speakers as well as staff constitute the membership of the ELAC. The ELAC meets about 4-6 times per year in order to:
Learn about Lafayette’s English Learners and assess their needs
Educate the school community about Lafayette’s English learners and promote programs and services to ensure their success
Advocate for families of English Learners
Ask Mr. Berger or Ms. Brook about how to get involved in the ELAC!
