• The functional English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) is a committee for parents or other community members who want to advocate for English Learners. ELAC is a meeting place that parents can use as a platform to express their concerns and ideas to both the school and the district, to inform the decisions of the School Site Council

    Major Function

    The purpose of ELAC is to advise the principal and school staff on programs and services for English learners and the SSC on the development of the Single School Plan for Student Achievement. Children benefit by ELAC as their parents' concerns are voiced to the School Site Council, resulting in an impact on decisions at both the school level and the district level. They will see the change in their parents, as the parents are empowered by the trainings they will receive, and as they develop the ability to speak out for their families.

    ELAC at Royal Oaks STEAM Academy meets the 1st Tuesday of every month inside the school Library at 8:30am
