Why does BPAC exist?
School districts that have Transitional Bilingual Education (TBE) or Dual Language Programs are required to establish a Bilingual Parent Advisory Council. The committee is comprised of parents of children in the program, district staff and other interested community members. Two-thirds of the committee members must be parents of children in the bilingual education program. The committee must meet at least 4 times a year and participates in the planning, operation, and evaluation of the program and also reviews the district annual application to the Illinois State Board of Education. After forming, the committee operates autonomously, including the election of officers and the establishments of internal rules and procedures.
