What is the English Learner Advisory Committee?

The English Learner Advisory Committee is a school-level committee of English Learner parents, staff, and community members designated to advise and assist school officials in making important decisions related to services and programs for English learners.  Each California public school with 21 or more English learners must form an English Learner Advisory Committee.
