Bilingual Parent Advisory Committee


If you are the parent of an English Learner, you are invited to participate in the District 401 Bilingual Parent Advisory Committee (BIPAC).


What Is BIPAC?


BIPAC is a parent organization for our English learners and bilingual students. Our activities include the following:

► We provide guidance for District 401's bilingual program.
► We meet to plan parent evenings.
► We provide information regarding the English learner program for the D401 community


Our Goals


BIPAC's goals are to:

► Advocate for students in the bilingual and EL programs in District 401.
► Help make decisions regarding the bilingual and EL programs in District 401.
► Connect with other parents in District 401.
► Support the academic achievement of your student(s) by attending workshops, conferences and other events for bilingual parents.
