ELAC - English Learner Advisory Committee
California schools with 21 or more English Learners are required to establish a functioning English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) on programs and services for English Learners.
The purpose of the ELAC (or subcommittee, if appropriate) is to advise the principal and school staff on programs and services for ELs and the School Site Council on the development of the Single School Plan for Student Achievement. ELAC also assists the school on other tasks listed below. The ELAC assists in the school’s needs assessment and the school’s annual language census (R-30 Report).
 
DELAC - District English Learner Advisory Committee
San Ramon Valley Unified School District has 51 or more English Learners enrolled; therefore, the district has established a functioning District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) on programs and services for English Learners. DELAC provides district-wide input on programs for English learners.
