2020-2021 Mustang Council (CAC)
Mustang Council Roles and Responsibilities
AISD Campus Advisory Councils (CACs) are committees of parents, students, business and community representatives, teachers, principals, and other campus staff. The formation of a CAC is required by state law (Texas Education Code, §11.251). The O. Henry Middle School (OHMS) CAC’s mission is to promote excellence in education for all OHMS students through broad-based representation.
The Mustang Council (CAC) is charged with the responsibility of making recommendations to the OHMS Principal that improve the educational opportunities at OHMS. Please note that the CAC is an advisory committee, not a decision-making body. The OHMS Principal, ultimately, has decision-making responsibility for the OHMS campus.
The Mustang Council (CAC) is charged with discussing and providing feedback and guidance on topics that relate to the following areas reviewed and updated annually:
- Planning (Campus Improvement Plan)
- Staff Development
- Staffing Patterns
- School Organization
Once feedback and recommendations are made regarding discussed topics, the OHMS Principal will make decisions that will also include input from others such as the OHMS Administrative Team, Cabinet, Leadership Team, and/or Faculty.
After the Principal reaches decisions, a report will be shared with OHMS Mustang Council (CAC).
More information regarding the CAC protocol and processes can be found on the AISD website pages:
