The primary purpose of our CVUSD  District English Learning Advisory Committee (DELAC) is to provide advice to the district regarding educational programs and support services for students who are English Learners. The more parents know about their students' education and school, the stronger their support will be in their students’ educational success. During DELAC meetings, discussions of the EL Program and EL Program Goals take place and parents learn more about Common Core Standards, curriculum, district, state and federal laws. DELAC parents can make important recommendations to support the needs of English learners and improve the EL students' quality of education. Research shows that parental involvement contributes to students academic success. Because families have influence on their children’s achievement, it is crucial that schools, families, and the community work together to make this happen. DELAC provides parents of English Learners and opportunity to get involved and continue supporting and advocating for the needs of English Learners.
