More than 30% of students at Rucker speak a language other than English at home and are not yet fluent in English. These students are our English Learners. The English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) is established to advise the Principal, School Site Council, and school staff on programs and services that benefit Rucker's English learners and best practices that benefit all students. Parents of both English learners and fluent English speakers as well as staff constitute the membership of the ELAC. The ELAC meets monthly in order to:
Learn about Rucker's English Learners and assess their needs
Educate the school community about Rucker's English learners and promote programs and services to ensure their success
Advocate for families of English Learners
The School Site Council serves to review and evaluate the School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). The purpose of the council is to evaluate the effectiveness of school programs in order to increase the academic performance of all students. The council is comprised of teachers, staff, parents and the principal.
Currently meetings are held from 2:30 - 3:30 once a month unless otherwise noted.
