ELA-PAC

What is ELA-PAC?

ELA-PAC is the organization in charge of communication between parents and the school regarding English Language Acquisition programming (ELA). All ELA Program schools must have an ELA-PAC, according to a court-ordered consent decree.

There is also a district-level committee for communication about ELA (called the ELA District Advisory Committee, or ELA-DAC). ELA-DAC meets at the Superintendent Parent’s Forum. For more information about these events or to register visit the DPS Office of Family and Community Engagement (FACE).

To carpool to ELA-DAC, contact your Family and Community Liaison Carolyn Leahy.

The legally-mandated responsibilities of ELA-PACs are to:

  • Provide families information about ELA programming
  • Increase communication between families and schools
