Scholarships are an excellent way to complete college with little or no debt. In addition to those offered by the schools, many organizations and companies also offer scholarships, some based on financial need, some on other criteria. There is a list of scholarships available within Naviance. We’ve posted an additional list of verified scholarships on the Leland website. Please click here and browse by month due.
The School English Learner’s Advisory Council (SELAC) and the District English Learners Advisory Council (DELAC) are composed of teachers and parents whose main concerns are the welfare and education of students who are English learners (EL). The purpose of these organizations is to provide advice to the principal and staff regarding programs and services for English learners, and to provide information (both from the school and from the District office) to parents.
Attending SELAC and DELAC meetings is a great opportunity to become involved with your student’s education, and a great way to meet parents of other EL students at Leland and in San Jose Unified. You will learn more about the EL programs that are available, and your participation in the groups is a terrific venue in which to have your voice heard. Our first meeting will be held August 31 at 6:00pm before Back to School Night. The following SELAC meetings are held at 4:30 p.m. on the Leland campus, in Room C6.
