The Illinois School Code establishes the Bilingual Advisory Committee (BAC) as a standing committee of each Local School Council (LSC) at schools which have bilingual educational programs. As such, the BAC is responsible for advising the principal and the LSC regarding the planning, operation and evaluation of bilingual program services.
The primary purpose of NCLB is to ensure that students in every public school achieve important learning goals while being educated in safe classrooms by well-prepared teachers.
