Welcome to BPAC...
BILINGUAL PARENT ADVISORY COUNCIL (BPAC)
The goal of the Somers Point Bilingual Parent Advisory Council (BPAC) is to support programs that serve the English Learners (ELs) and to advocate for the development of bilingual and bi-literate students. The Somers Point BPAC provides family support, information, communication and learning activities that will assist in ensuring our students have equal access to education as they grow into global citizens.
School districts are required to establish a Bilingual Parent Advisory Council (BPAC). BPAC is comprised of parents or legal guardians of students enrolled in the English Language Program, teachers, administrators, and other community members. The council must meet a least four times per year and participate in the planning, operations, and evaluation of the English Language Program.
