Parent Leadership Opportunities

How Can I Become A Parent Leader...

...At My School?

Each school site has councils and committees to ensure that our students have what they need to achieve success! Please contact your school for information on how to become involved with the following councils and committees. 


School Site Council (SSC) 

The SSC is the decision-making council for all programs funded through the Consolidated Application (ConAp). The SSC is responsible for the development of the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA), in consultation with the English Learner Advisory Committee, other relevant stakeholders and, where applicable, the School Advisory Committee. The SSC is also responsible for meeting all school level federal parental involvement mandates including the development of the Title I parent involvement policy and budget (E046) and the Title I parent-school compact.


English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) 

The ELAC provides written recommendations to the SSC regarding programs and services for English Learner (EL) students and the use of funding to support their academic needs. The ELAC reviews student and parent involvement data prior to submitting its written recommendations to the SSC. The ELAC also advises on the development of the Single Plan for Student Achievement and the budget related to programs/services for ELs and assists in the review of the school’s language census. The committee meets at least six times per school year. 


...With ESC-East?

ESC-East will elect delegates from school site committees for the District-wide Advisory Committees. Please contact us at (323) 224-3200 for more information.


Educational Service Center ELAC Delegate Convening 

The Educational Service Center ELAC Delegate Convening is a single convening of ELAC delegates hosted by the school’s regional Educational Service Center (ESC) in October 2012. The purpose of the convening is to elect participating ELAC delegates to the 2013-14 District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC). Each ESC will host one ELAC Delegate Convening and will elect a total of ten delegates and two alternates to the DELAC.
