Bilingual Parent Advisory Council (BPAC)

The goal of the Elmhurst Bilingual Parent Advisory Council (BPAC) is to support programs that serve English Learners (ELs) and to advocate for the development of bilingual and biliterate students. The Elmhurst BPAC provides family support, information, communication and learning activities that will assist in ensuring our students have equal access to education as they grow into global citizens.

School districts that have Transitional Bilingual Education (TBE) programs are required to establish a Bilingual Parent Advisory Council (BPAC). The majority of the BPAC is comprised of parents or legal guardians of students enrolled in these programs, teachers, administrators and other community members. The committee must meet at least four times per year and participates in the planning, operation and evaluation of the program and also reviews the district's grant applications.
