The English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)
Oxford’s English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) advises the principal and staff on programs and services for students who are English learners.
The ELAC also makes recommendations to the English Learner (EL) programs that are part of the annual school plan developed by the Oxford School Governance Council (SGC) regarding funds used to improve the achievement of English language learners. At many schools, the ELAC holds cultural events and works to broaden community outreach.
There is also a District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) for all Berkeley public schools.
If you are interested in serving on the ELAC, please email Oxford’s Family Engagement Coordinator Carol Finis Perez or call her at 510-849-7396.
The Parent Advisory Committee (PAC)
The Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) is a crucial district governance body comprised of parent/guardian representatives from each school.
The PAC provides input to the Berkeley Unified School District’s Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) for the allocation of supplemental funds provided by the state, based on the district’s proportion of English learners, students who qualify for free and reduced price meals, and foster children.
