Bryker Woods Elementary

Campus Advisory Council

Campus Advisory Councils (CAC) 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. For more information, visit https://www.austinisd.org/advisory-bodies/cac.

Generally, the Bryker Woods CAC meets in the library from 3:20–4:20 p.m. on the second Monday of each month. (Due to COVID, meetings are currently virtual. Please see LivingTree for links to attend.) In the case of holidays or school closures, the Council meets on the third Monday of each month. Meeting minutes are posted below.
