District Advisory Council

What is the District Advisory Council (DAC)?                          

The District Advisory Council is a committee of parents, students, business and community representatives, teachers, principals, and other district staff. The formation of the DAC is required by state law (Texas Education Code, §11.251). Specific functions of the DAC include providing review and comment on:

  • District Educational Program
  • District Performance
  • District Improvement Plan
  • Student Code of Conduct
  • District Staff Development Plan
  • Waiver Requests to the State
  • District Budget

What is the mission of the DAC?

The mission of the DAC is to promote excellence in education for all AISD students through broad-based community representation. The DAC provides valuable input to the Superintendent and Board of Trustees, who ultimately have decision-making responsibility for the district.
