Bilingual Parent Advisory Committee (BPAC)

  • About BPAC

     

    During the 2022-23 school year, School Districts 47 and 155 are partnering to form a Bilingual Parent Advisory Committee (BPAC) to support the needs of bilingual and multilingual families and students in our community.

     

    School districts with 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.
