Anderson High School

Campus Advisory Council (CAC)


The Anderson CAC Application window has now closed; thank you to all who applied and are now members.


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 and with your name, email address and concern to be expressed by the Friday 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. 


*“If the CAC is interested in hearing more from a speaker, the speaker may be invited to a future meeting and placed on the agenda specifically for that purpose. Or, the CAC may call a special meeting specifically for the purpose of open dialogue with non-members (e.g., a “community conversation”), but it must be posted for discussion on a specific topic or topics.” 


If you are a person who would like to attend our CAC meeting as a guest, please send an email to both co-chairs Cathryne McNamara and Valerie Tyler with your name and email address by the Friday before that month's meeting.  There is a 100 person Zoom limit on our meetings, so we will honor requests in the order that they are emailed; all meeting minutes will be posted to the CAC website.

All CAC meetings will be held at 4:45pm via ZOOM.  Upon return to campus meetings will take place in the library.
Citizens' communications will be scheduled at or near the beginning of each meeting. In order to ensure sufficient time to complete business, a maximum of 15 minutes will be provided for citizens' communications; each limited to two minutes. 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.

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.
