Site English Language Learner Subcommittee
Mon, Dec 11 4:30pm-5:30pm
Joaquin Miller Library

Dear JM Parents/Guardians, 


Dear JM Parents/Guardians, 

I hope this message finds you all relaxed and rejuvenated after your Thanksgiving holiday break! Our establishment meeting for the Site English Language Learner Subcommittee (SELLS) will be held on Monday, December 11th at 4:30 in the library. As noted on the attached flyer...


At this meeting, parents of English Learners will have an opportunity to elect your representatives to the committee.

Federal Education Code requires schools with 21 or more English Language Learners (ELL) to establish a school level advisory committee composed primarily of parents of ELLs to provide the following

• Advise the school site council (SSC) on the development of the Single School Plan for Student Achievement.

• Advise the principal and staff on the school’s program for English learners.

• Assist in the development of the school’s needs assessment

• Help to make parents aware of the importance of regular school attendance


The SELLS has the opportunity to elect at least one member to the LCAP EL parent advisory committee. This committee offers an excellent opportunity for parents, community members and site personnel to work together and plan for student achievement. We encourage you to attend this meeting and elect your representatives to our Site English Language Learner Subcommittee (SELLS).


Last year, the SELLS committee voted to fold itself into the School Site Council to avoid having duplicate meetings. Those who attend the first meeting will determine if they wish to do this again. 


Please email me at with any questions you have. 


Take care,

Sara Green
