District Parent Advisory Meetings - DELAC

Welcome to the Los Banos Unified School District English Learners Advisory Committee (DELAC). We hope that you find the information presented here both useful and informational. DELAC is composed of representatives from each school's English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC), a school-based committee required if there are more than 21 English Learners at that school. The Committee's role is to advise the district on programs and services for English Learner students. For more information, contact your school principal, your ELAC representative, any DELAC Officer, Alberto Verduzco, DELAC District Administrator Designee, at 826-3801, ext. 7033, Paula Mastrangelo, Elementary Area Administrator at 826-3801, ext. 1008 or Eric Sowersby, Director of State and Federal Programs at 587-1621, ext. 7708. 

The Los Banos Unified School District's English Language Advisory Committee meets regularly to discuss issues related to the needs of our English Learners and provides advice to the School Board. Each year the committee creates and conducts a needs assessment to survey parents and guardians throughout the district.The focus of the survey is determined by the parent members of the committee. The survey typically gathers information regarding topics to be discussed or researched further based on current students or school issues. Once data is collected from the survey the topics for meeting presentations are set in the upcoming year's calendar.
