Bilingual Advisory Committees (BACs) empower parents of English Learners (ELs) to participate in their student's education and advocate for the academic, social, and cultural development of all ELs.

BAC meetings address issues relating to the education of English Learners (ELs) in TBE or TPI instructional contexts; provide information about CPS services, programs, and resources for students and families; and train parents to effectively participate in the overall governance of bilingual education. 

Every school implementing a state-mandated Transitional Bilingual Education (TBE) Program is required to form a Bilingual Advisory Committee (BAC). At Linne parents with children in the TBE program as well as in the Dual Language Program  participate in BAC meetings. 

BACs meet at the school at least five times a year, and include parent trainings and workshops. Five officers are elected annually and report to the Local School Council. The BAC Handbook provides detailed information about how BACs are organized and function and is offered in multiple languages.
