Parent Member Elections for SSC / Governing Board and ELAC: December 6,2016

Dear Parents,

We encourage you to make a difference in the governance of our school by participating in this year’s School Site Council (SSC) and English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). These groups are mandated by the California Education Codes and directed by LAUSD policy. The SSC is mandated under California Education Code 52853 and makes decisions regarding the use of categorical funding for our students based on written recommendations from our school’s English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). The SSC represents all our stakeholders and is comprised of teachers, parents/community, other school staff, the principal and students in secondary schools only.


The English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) is mandated under California Education Code 52176(b). All schools, including Special Education schools with twenty-one (21) or more English Learner (EL) students, are required to establish an ELAC. The ELAC represents parents and legal guardians of EL students, who must constitute at least 51% of the membership; however, if the percentage of EL students in the school is greater than 51%, the percentage of EL parents on the ELAC must match the school’s total EL population. ELACs advise on programs, services and carryover funding for EL students.
