DELAC Meeting Info

At Eureka City Schools we value the diverse linguistic backgrounds of our students, and we believe in fostering an inclusive environment. As a California public school district with 51 or more English learners, we are excited to invite you to join our District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC).

As a member of DELAC, you play a crucial role in shaping the educational experience for English learners in our district. Your insights and contributions will directly impact various aspects, and together, we will work on the following responsibilities:

District Master Plan: Collaborate on the development of a comprehensive district master plan for education programs and services tailored to the needs of English learners, while considering the school site master plans.

Needs Assessment: Participate in conducting a district-wide needs assessment, analyzing the unique requirements of each school within our district.

Program Goals and Objectives: Contribute to the establishment of district program goals and objectives, ensuring they align with the diverse needs of our English learner community.

Compliance Plan: Work on the development of a plan to ensure compliance with any applicable teacher and/or teacher aide requirements, enhancing the quality of education for English learners.

Reclassification Procedures: Provide valuable insights by reviewing and commenting on the school district's reclassification procedures for English learners.

Parent and Guardian Communication: Play a pivotal role in reviewing and providing feedback on the written notifications that are required to be sent to parents and guardians.

Additionally, if our DELAC acts as the English learner parent advisory committee under California Education Code Sections 52063(b)(1) and 52062(a)(2), we extend our responsibilities to include reviewing and commenting on the development or annual update of the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).

Your dedication to enhancing the educational journey for our English learners is welcome. We look forward to your valuable contributions to DELAC, making a positive impact on the lives of our students.
