The DELAC shall advise the district's local governing board on the following tasks:

  • Develop or revision of a district master plan of education programs and services for English learners
  • Conducting a district-wide needs assessment on a school-by-school basis
  • Develop a plan to ensure compliance with any applicable teacher and instructional aide requirements
  • Administration of the annual language census
  • Review and comment on the district's reclassification procedures
  • Review and comment on the written notifications required to be sent to parents and guardians.
  • Each school's English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) must have the opportunity to elect at least one of its members to be a site representative in the DELAC
