EL Parent Advisory Committee

AB English Learner Parent Advisory Committee (ELPAC)

In 2017, Massachusetts Governor Baker signed the "Act Relative to Language Opportunity for Our Kids," Chapter 138 of the Acts of 2017, commonly referred to as the “LOOK Act,” into law.  The LOOK Act requires a school district operating a language acquisition program for English Learners (ELs) serving 100 or more ELs or in which ELs comprise at least five percent of the district’s student population are required to establish an ELPAC. ELPACs are intended by law to advise school districts and schools regarding matters that impact ELs, such as providing advice on English learner education programs, meeting regularly with school officials about educational opportunities for ELs, and providing input on school or district improvement plans as they relate to ELs.
