Bilingual Parent Advisory Committee (BPAC)
School districts that have Transitional Bilingual Education (TBE) programs are required to establish a Bilingual Parent Advisory Committee (BPAC). The committee participates in the planning, operation, and evaluation of the TBE program. The committee is comprised of parents of children in the TBE program and other interested community members. Two-thirds of the committee members must be parents of students in the bilingual education program. All parents of students in the bilingual education program are invited to become members of the committee. The BPAC committee hosts events for families of students in the bilingual education program and childcare is provided. Remaining meeting dates for the 2020-21 school year are below. These events require no registration and are open to all parents. All events are presented in Spanish.

The mission of the Bilingual Parent Advisory Committee is for parents, staff and the school district to work together in order to meet the needs of all bilingual students. The goal of the BPAC is to help parents of ELLs develop leadership skills for effective participation in schools and advocate on the behalf of all ELLs. We will use the resources of the entire community, including students, parents, teachers, staff, administrators and business leaders.
