District 63's Dual Language Parent Advisory Council (DLPAC) brings together parents from Nelson, Stevenson, and Apollo whose children are in the Bilingual and Dual Language Programs. It's mission is to create a community of bilingual families that empower all students to succeed in a changing world. The DLPAC is a great way to offer your feedback about how programs are meeting the needs of families and gather suggestions on how we can make changes to better meet the needs of District 63 students.
The DLPAC will meet five times a school year. All participants are encouragned to provide input on the planning, operation, and evaluation of the Dual Language and Bilingual Programs. Meetings are held in Spanish and English.
DLPAC goals are to:
- Maintain open communication between parents and District 63.
- Provide parents of bilingual students with opportunities to learn about and discuss District programs.
- Gather input on topics for expanding District parent education programs.
- Review the District’s annual Transitional Bilingual Education (TBE)/Transitional Program of Instruction (TPI) grant.
We encourage all parents of students in the Dual Language and Bilingual Programs to become active members of the DLPAC.
