The English Learner Advisory Council is made up of the parents/guardians of English learners, school staff, and community members. A school English Learner Council for parents serves as a platform for parents of English language learners (ELLs) to come together and share their experiences, challenges, and ideas to improve their child's academic and social success. The council provides a space for parents to voice their concerns, discuss language barriers, cultural differences, and the unique needs of ELL students. Through the council, parents can collaborate with school administrators, teachers and other stakeholders to develop policies, programs, and resources that support their child's learning and linguistic development. Ultimately, the purpose of the council is to empower parents to advocate for their child and promote equity and inclusion for ELL students within their school community.
