Advisory Bodies

What Are AISD Advisory Bodies?

The Austin Independent School District values the participation and input of all community members and transparency of information and process. To that end, the district has established several advisory bodies consisting of broad stakeholder representation to provide insight and recommendations on important issues.

These advisory bodies may be called task forces, committees, or councils. Some of them are standing bodies and meet permanently on a regular basis, while some of them are ad hoc or periodic bodies and meet for a limited time to address a specific topic. Selection entities for advisory body memberships may include Trustees, the Superintendent, the administration, or the advisory bodies themselves.

Below is a list of current AISD advisory bodies, all of which have their own websites. To learn more about specific AISD advisory bodies, please use the links provided.

To find out if a particular committee currently has any vacant positions, please refer to the membership lists provided on each committee website. To apply for membership on one or more committees, please complete and submit the standard application form: English / Spanish
