Multilingual District Advisory Committee
What is the Multilingual District Advisory Committee (MDAC)?
Each district with 51 or more English learners, regardless of their language, must form a functioning Multilingual Advisory Committee (MDAC). The purpose of this committee is to advise the district governing board on issues related to English learners (ELs).
Who is part of it?
Meetings are open to any interested parties. In addition, each school in the District with more than 20 ELs is required to send a representative to this Committee. If the school has an English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC), the ELAC chooses the delegate. If the School Site Council (SSC) has assumed the ELAC responsibilities, then they are responsible for choosing the representative.
Where does it Convene?
MDAC meetings are held via Zoom. Dates and locations are noted on the meeting schedule.
Thursday evening Meeting Time: 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
