English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

The English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) is responsible for advising the principal and staff on programs and services for English learners and the School Site Council on the development of the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA).  The ELAC assists the school in the development of the school's needs assessment and ways to make parents aware of the importance of regular school attendance.  ELAC members are provided training and materials to assist in carrying out advisory responsibilities.

The ELAC is a great way for parents of English learners to become involved in their child’s education.  Meetings include additional informative topics and speakers.  Parents can attend the school ELAC at anytime.  For more information on the ELAC at Newport Coast, please review this web page or contact our school office.


In addition, there is a District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC). Please visit the DELAC website for more information.
