ELPAC Information



Reclassification is the process whereby an English Learner is reclassified as a Fluent English Proficient (RFEP) student after meeting various linguistic and academic criteria set by the state and district.  The San Francisco Unified School District has developed student reclassification policy and procedures based on criteria set forth by California Department of Education (CDE) guidelines.  In general, students initially identified as English Learners (ELs) are reclassified as Fluent English Proficient when they meet the following criteria: 

  1. Overall English proficiency level of 4 (Early Advanced) or 5 (Advanced) on the California English Language Development Test (CELDT), with subscores of 3 (Intermediate) or higher;
  2. Demonstration of “basic skills” in English from an objective assessment that is also given to English proficient students of the same age
  3. Teacher Evaluation
  4. Parent Notification

English Learner Advisory Council


Each California Public School from Kindergarten through grade 12, with 21 or more English learners must form a functional English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). The ELAC is a committee for parents or other community members who want to advocate for English Learners.


Major Function
 The purpose of the ELAC (or subcommittee, if appropriate) is to advise the principal and school staff on programs and services for English learners and the SSC on the development of the Single School Plan for Student Achievement. The ELAC also assists the school on other tasks listed below


The committee advises and assists the school principal, staff and School Site Council (SSC) as follows:

  1. The school’s program for English learners.
  2. The development of the Single School Plan for Student Achievement.(BSC/SPSA)
  3. The school’s needs assessment.
  4. The school’s annual language census (R-30 LC Report).
  5. Efforts to make parents aware of the importance of regular school attendance.

Composition Requirements

The percentage of parents of English learners on the committee must be at least the same as that of English learners at the school.


Requirements for ELAC elections include:

  1. Parents/guardians of English learners elect parent members of the school committee.
  2. The parents/guardians are provided the opportunity to vote for committee members.
  3. Each school committee shall have the opportunity to elect at least one member to the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC). 


The district shall provide for all ELAC members:

  1. Appropriate training and materials to assist each member to carry out his or her legally required advisory responsibilities.
  2. Training planned in full consultation with ELAC members. ElA-LEP and/or district funds may be used to cover the costs of training and attendance of ELAC members (e.g., costs associated with childcare, translation services, meals, and other reasonable expenses).
