The Woodland Unified School District strongly supports the involvement of all parents, including those parents of English Learners, in the educational process of their children. Parents are encouraged to participate in their child’s school sites’ English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). Each participating school site holds a minimum of two general sessions per school year. This functioning body advises the school site on programs and services for English Language Learners. By participating on your child’s school sites’ ELAC, you have the opportunity to serve as a committee member of our District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC). This district level committee consists of parents, teachers, administrators, and district personnel who are interested in becoming knowledgeable about and more involved with the English Learner program.
