District Community Advisory Committee (DCAC) Meetings
Representatives from each of the Title I schools make up this parent advisory committee. These monthly meetings provide opportunities for parents to become involved and informed about the education of their children. Parents are also introduced to the various District programs (including interventions) that are available for their children. This group also participates in the annual Parent Leadership Training. As representatives, parents are encouraged to disseminate information from the meetings to other parents at their school, in School Site Council, District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC), PTA, or staff meetings.
District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) Meetings
Each California public school district, grades Kindergarten through 12, with 51 or more English learners must form a District-level English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC). The District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) is a fantastic way for parents to become involved in their child’s education at a district level. Each month, DELAC Representatives, parents, district leaders, and community members attend DELAC meetings at Martin Luther King, Jr. Park in Long Beach. Parents of English Learners participate in meetings about English Learner (EL) services which include establishing district programs, goals and objectives for EL programs and services, reclassification process, and how EL funds are used to implement academic services for English Learners.

This distinct group of parents work as partners along with the district to make certain that their children meet high academic standards. To ensure that this occurs, the district provides African American parents with information, tools and skills that will empower parents to elevate achievement in their home, school and community.
