District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC)

The goals and objectives of DELAC are to provide advice, assistance and advisory recommendations to the administration and the Board of Education for the continuing improvement of the general education of English-language learners.

DELAC informs parent representatives so they can take the information back to the school site.  Topics that will be addressed this year include: Understanding CELDT Data, Student Reclassification, ELD Requirements, Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives (AMAOs), and Categorical Program Monitoring.

All DELAC meetings are open to the public.  Meetings are held each month from 9:00am.-11:00am in the PDC located at the District Office, 1300 Baker St., 93305.  For more information on DELAC, please contact the ELL Services Department at 631-3221.
