BPAC is a committee of parents, district leaders, and teachers that meet at least four times a year and focus on the bilingual/EL education and programming of the District. Being a BPAC member, you will get to know the curriculum, budget, and ongoing learning for teachers.

    Mission Statement:

    Our Goals:

    • To establish a collaborative voice between our bilingual families and District 31
    • To promote positive parental participation in the development of the educational experiences for our children
    • To develop the capacity of our parents to support their children with their academic work
    • To establish a bilingual parent network and promote cultural awareness
    • To help make decisions regarding the bilingual program at District 31
    • To understand and review the assessments, resources, and instructional methods used in language acquisition programs
