Campus Advisory Council

Purpose and Mission

Campus Advisory Councils are committees of parents, scholars, 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 the CAC is to promote excellence in education for all scholars through broad-based representation. CACs advise and provide valuable input to principals, who ultimately have decision-making responsibility for their campuses.
