Stephen F. Austin High School

Campus Advisory Council (CAC)

The Campus Advisory Council (CAC) is made up of Austin High School teachers, support staff, parents, and community members who meet once a month with the Principal to discuss school-related issues and provide input on campus-level decisions, particularly those which address student needs and achievement. The Council meets (generally-speaking) on the first non-holiday Monday of the month.  These meetings are open to any member of the community who would like to attend.

If you would like to serve on the CAC, a 2-year commitment, submit a CAC membership application (see below) to Linda Garcia ( in Amy Taylor's office.

If you would like to speak at a CAC meeting (2 minutes during open forum), contact CAC Co-Chair John Dagar (
