MLE Parent Advisory Committee (MLE-PAC)
What are MLE-PACs?
MLE-PAC is the organization in charge of communication between parents and the school regarding Multi-Lingual Education programming. All MLE Program schools must have an MLE-PAC, according to a court-ordered consent decree. (Click here to check if your school is an ELA school.)
For support reach out to Adriana_pena@dpsk12.net
MLE-PAC can be a subcommittee of another organization, and DPS recommends making MLE-PAC a subcommittee of your school’s Collaborative School Committee to maximize family involvement (see Action Plan for details). There is also a district-level committee for communication about MLE (called the MLE District Advisory Committee, or MLE-DAC).
What are the responsibilities of MLE-PACs?
The legally-mandated responsibilities of MLE-PACs are to:
- Provide families information about MLE programming
- Increase communication between families and schools
- Review the implementation of MLE programming
- Listen and respond to family concerns
