Jahn has a Bilingual Advisory Committee (BAC) for parents whose children are in the Bilingual program. Schools with State Mandated Transitional Bilingual programs are required to establish a Bilingual Advisory Committee (BAC) which functions as a standing committee on the LSC. The BAC serves to identify and address academic concerns related to the school’s bilingual education programs in the CIWP and budget allocations.
