Anderson High School

Campus Advisory Council (CAC)

Are you interested in joining the CAC?


The Anderson High School CAC is now accepting applications for the Anderson Campus Advisory Council (CAC). Campus Advisory Councils are committees comprised of parents, students, business and community representatives, as well as teachers, principals, and other campus staff. CAC’s are advisory boards providing valuable input to campus principals who ultimately have the decision-making authority for the campus.

More information on the mission of CAC’s and the requirements of membership can be found HERE and on our Anderson High School web page HERE 


For our Anderson CAC, like all Campus Advisory Councils, the most important requirement of membership is attendance. The Anderson CAC will be meeting virtually through ZOOM meetings until in-person meetings become a safe option and those meetings will then occur in the library. All meetings will be at 4:45 p.m.

The Anderson CAC dates for the 2020-21 school year have been set and are an important part of your consideration:

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.
