The Purpose of ELAC:
E.L.A.C. promotes parent support for our English Language Learners and the ELD (English Language Development) program at Beechwood School. At the meetings, information is disseminated to parents regarding current school activities and programs. E.L.A.C. also provides training opportunities for parents to support their child’s language development at home. The trainings and its topics are scheduled based on a needs assessment completed by parents at the first meeting.
According to E.L.A.C. by laws, at least 51% of the membership belongs to parents of English Language Learners. The remaining percentage includes any other interested parents of Beechwood School. All members of E.L.A.C. serve for two-year terms, commencing in September. E.L.A.C. has elected officers, which are elected annually and serve for one year.
