[09/22/14]   All Delegates,
We need your help to represent MSAAC at the ELITE meetings.
+ Background Info
LCPS has launched a team to address the growing language barrier between their educators, students and parents. Last year several stake holders were invited to meet and brainstorm what they felt should be done to address this issue in LCPS. MSAAC was invited. By modeling some best practices and possibly developing new ones, the ELITE team is hoping to create a more equitable learning experience for those students where English is a their second language.

+ The Need
The MSAAC representative will attend meetings, taking an active role as needed toward the above initiative. The representative will serve as a liaison between the two groups, gather info from each meeting, share information timely with MSAAC executive committee, and accurately represent the views /goals/ of the general membership. The representative will on occasion provide verbal updates to the general body at our meetings.

Ideally, we would like two MSAAC representative to share in this important opportunity.

Feel free to message below with any questions or to express your willingness to support MSAAC in this way.

Thank you.
