    What is the Bilingual/ESL Parent Advisory Committee?

    The Bilingual/ESL Parent Advisory Committee is a committee required for public school districts that have bilingual education programs, code 6A:15-1.15 (b).  The committee consists of bilingual program parents, legal guardians of English Learners, bilingual and ESL teachers, counselors, or other school personnel, and EL Community leaders.

    1. Advocate for students in the Bilingual and ESL Programs
    2. Help make decisions regarding the Bilingual and ESL Programs
    3. Connect with other parents in Hackensack Public Schools
    4. Support the academic achievement of ELL students by attending trainings/workshops and other events for bilingual parents.
