What is ELAC?
The ELAC is the English learner Advisory Committee. We are a group of family and community members who want to take an active role in advocating for our English Learning (EL) students. We meet 4 times a year. The meeting dates and locations are to determined by the group. Food, child care and translations are provided at every meeting. We meet to discuss current school events and improving school supports for our EL students, and how to best use our budget to improve the services.This is a great opportunity to provide feedback to our school. Please reach out to Jesus Sicairos (Sicairosj@sfusd.edu) if you are interested in taking a leadership role in supporting our EL students at Wallenberg High School.
