Waltham English Learner Parent Advisory Council

On November 22, 2017, Governor Baker signed into law the Language Opportunity for Our Kids Act (LOOK Act). The goal of this new law is to improve the education of English learners (ELs). The law has created more opportunities for input from parents and guardians of English learners in language acquisition programs.

The English learner parent advisory council (ELPAC) is made up of parents and legal guardians of English learners.  Membership is voluntary and is open to all parents and legal guardians of students who are or have been identified as English learners.
