District Advisory Council
Every school district in the State of Texas is required to establish a committee that regularly meets to plan for the improvement of student performance. The Board of Trustees for Hutto ISD has adopted a policy establishing a committee to help with the district-level planning and decision-making process. This committee is called the District Advisory Council or DAC.
The mission of the DAC is to inspire excellence in education for all Hutto ISD students through broad-based community representation. The Council is advisory in nature and approves district-level professional development plans. Other purposes include reviewing the District’s educational plans, goals, student performance, drop-out information, and major classroom instructional programs.
The DAC consists of campus-based professional staff, District-level professional staff, parents, business representatives, and community members. As required by law, at least 2/3 of the district/campus staff must be classroom teachers. Every effort is made to select non-staff members representing ethnic, grade, and program diversity.
The DAC meets approximately 5 times a year, usually at 5:30 p.m. at the Hutto ISD Administration Building, 200 College Street, Hutto, Texas. After each meeting, minutes are posted on the District’s website.
To receive additional information about the DAC, contact the office of the Assistant Superintendent of School Support (512) 759-3771.
