English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

ELAC Information

Our Loma Portal Elementary English Learner Advisory Committee is an organization made up of teachers, parents, and Principal with a focus on working together to help support our English Learning (EL) students. We meet monthly in the library and discuss various district and school EL procedures, strategies we use during the school day, and activities parents can do with their child at home. These meetings are open to the public and we highly recommend that all parents of an EL child attend! Please see below for meeting agendas and presentations.

ELAC meetings for 2023-24 are TBD.  More info will be coming out soon!
