DELAC stands for District English Learner Advisory Committee. The Boston Public Schools Office of English Learners launched the DELAC initiative in the school year of 2015/2016. It is a multicultural and multiethnic, parent-led committee comprised of English Learner (EL) parents and community members whose task is to provide recommendations to school and district officials in regards to programs and services provided to EL students.  DELAC is the official voice of all our 17,000 EL families.
