District English Learners Advisory Committee

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.

DELAC Members

Schools with 21 or more English Learners shall establish a functioning school-level advisory committee.

District English Learners Advisory Committee Agenda

District Advisory Committee

School districts receiving Economic Impact Aid (EIA)/State Compensatory Education (SCE) are required to establish a district advisory committee (DAC) and a school advisory committee (SAC) for the purpose of advising districts and schools regarding compensatory education programs. A school may designate a school site council established pursuant to California Education Code (EC) Section 52852 to function as the school advisory council.
