Campus Advisory Council (CAC)

Join the CAC.

 

Are you interested in joining the Anderson Campus Advisory Council (CAC)?  

 

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.  Campus Advisory Councils are committees of parents/caretakers, 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

Membership is a 2-year commitment with a mandatory meeting schedule as follows.

 

CAC Meeting Dates for the 2022-23 School Year are below.  We will meet at 4:45 PM in the library.

 

To apply as a student, parent/caretaker, community or business representative, please fill out the membership application and email to Faculty CAC Chair Cathryne McNamara ([email protected]) and Parent CAC Chair Valerie Tyler ([email protected]).

 

Applications are due September 18th, 2022.

CAC meetings are open to all Anderson community members.  However, if you are a person who would like to speak during our CAC's Citizen(s) Communications* time, please send an email to both co-chairs Cathryne McNamara and Valerie Tyler with your name, email address and specific concern to be expressed before that month's meeting; all meetings are set and published here.  There will be 15 minutes total dedicated to Citizen(s) Communication, and each speaker will have a two-minute time limit; thus, only seven speakers will be added to that portion of the agenda.  They will be honored in the order emailed.  We also invite agenda suggestions and concerns and questions via email, which we as co-chairs will consider in our agenda setting meetings or may read during meetings on the behalf of community members. 

 

Please contact either co-chair Cathryne McNamara or co-chair Valerie Tyler to request time on the agenda for citizens' communication or with any agenda suggestions or concerns.
