District English Learners Advisory Committee (DELAC)

The District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) is a committee that provides oversight on the English Learner (EL) program and works with district leadership to provide a high quality program for MUHSD students. Each campus sends one representative from their English Learner Advisory Committee to review and comment on key policies and procedures in our district. The DELAC members pictured were instrumental in creating and administering a student survey of our EL students as part of our annual program review. We thank our DELAC parents for their commitment and service to our EL program, its students and staff.

Parent Involvement

BP 6020 Instruction

The Board of Trustees recognizes that parents/guardians are their children's first and most influential teachers and that continued parental involvement in the education of children contributes greatly to student achievement and a positive school environment.

In order to engage parents/guardians positively in their children's education, the Superintendent or designee shall ensure that staff members at each school:

1. Help parents/guardians develop parenting skills and provide home environments that support their children's academic efforts and their development as responsible members of society

2. Inform parents/guardians that they can directly affect the success of their children's learning and provide them techniques and strategies that they may use to improve their children's academic success and help their children in learning at home

(cf. 6154 - Homework/Make-Up Work)

3. Initiate consistent and effective two-way communication between the home and school so that parents/guardians may know when and how to help their children in support of classroom learning activities

(cf. 5124 - Communication with Parents/Guardians) (cf. 5145.6 - Parental Notifications)

4. Receive training that fosters effective and culturally sensitive communication with the home, including training on how to communicate with non-English speakers and how to give parents/guardians opportunities to assist in the instructional process both at school and at home

(cf. 4131 - Staff Development) (cf. 4231 - Staff Development) (cf. 4331 - Staff Development)

5. Encourage parents/guardians to serve as volunteers in the schools, attend student performances and school meetings, and participate in site councils, advisory councils and other activities in which they may undertake governance, advisory and advocacy roles
