Campus Advisory Councils are committees of parents, students, business and community representatives, teachers, principals, and other campus staff. The formation of CACs is required by state law (Texas Education Code, §11.251). Specific functions of CACs include providing review and comment on:

  • Campus Educational Program
  • Campus Performance
  • Campus Improvement Plan
  • Campus Staff Development Plan
  • Campus-Level Waiver Requests to the State
  • Campus Budget

The mission of CACs is to promote excellence in education for all students through broad-based representation. CACs provide valuable input to principals, who ultimately have decision-making responsibility for their campuses.

A CAC membership application is provided in the Additional Resources section. More detailed information on CAC meeting and membership criteria is contained in the CAC Bylaws, also provided in the Additional Resources section.

If you have any questions about specific CACs, please contact the appropriate campus. If you have any questions about the Additional Resources provided on this site, please contact Mr. Joey Crumley of the Office of Planning and Community Relations at 512.414.9961 or jcrumley@austinisd.org.
