We need the help of parents whose children are bilingual. This would be any child who speaks another language besides English. Four years ago we formed our English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC) for parents who want to learn more about Zanker procedures and policies. This committee is made up of parents who are bilingual. This year we are continuing and would like more parents to join us. We will meet throughout the year and share concerns and have your questions answered about your child's education. If you have questions, please contact Principal Trisha Lee at 635-2882.
The ELAC must advise the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC), principal and staff of: Developing a plan for the English Language Learners program at Zanker.
