CAMPUS ADVISORY COUNCIL
WHAT ARE CAMPUS ADVISORY COUNCILS (CACs)?
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 Improvement Plan
Campus Staff Development Plan
Campus-Level Waiver Requests to the State
WHAT IS THE MISSION OF THE CACs?
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.
