Parent Advisory Committees

  • The Parent Advisory Committees’ primary objective is to establish a clear and collaborative voice between the multilingual community of the EL Programs and D15. The committees are districtwide advisory groups that meet either virtually or in schools across the district and advocates for excellence in all programs serving English Learners in our district.

    The Parent Advisory Committees meet a minimum of 4 times each year and address topics such as:

    • Assessments that EL students take and results of those assessments
    • State and federal laws related to participation in ESL and bilingual programs
    • Information related to instructional approaches and methods used in ESL and bilingual education programs

    For more information about these committees, please reach out to Renee Urbanski at or 847-963-3136.
