WELCOME

The District English Learner Advisory Committee's (DELAC) mission is to provide an authentic parent voice through engaging in review and generating advice and comment on matters pertinent to English Learner programs to Wonderful College Prep Academy.  The overall goal of the DELAC is to improve our English learners’ acquisition of fluency in English and to help our students achieve academic success.


WHAT IS DELAC?

A district is required to form a DELAC if it has 51 or more English learner students. The committee is comprised of school staff, parents of English learner students, other parents and community members who are interested in English learner programs. At least 51 percent of the committee must be made up of parents of English learner students who are not employed by the district. 

DELAC informs parent representatives so they can take the information back to the school site.  Topics that will be addressed this year include: Understanding ELPAC Data, Student Reclassification, ELD Requirements, and LCAP. All DELAC meetings are open to the public.
