DAAC (District Academic 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. In Pflugerville ISD, this committee is called the District Academic Advisory Council, or DAAC. The role of the DAAC is primarily advisory and consultative in nature, and the specific functions of the DAAC 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
The DAAC consists of campus-based professional staff, District-level professional staff, parents, businesses, and the community. As required by law, at least 2/3 of the district/campus staff must be classroom teachers. Staff members on the DAAC are elected by their peers. Non-staff members are selected from volunteers. In addition to state regulations governing the selection of committee members, every effort is made to select non-staff members representing ethnic, grade, and program diversity.
The DAAC meets approximately 4-6 times a year. All meetings begin at 4:45 p.m., in the Pflugerville Administration Building Board Room. After each meeting, minutes are posted on the District’s website. Agendas are set by the Chief Academic and Innovation Officer, the chair of the DAAC, with input from the DAAC committee. For the 2020-2021 school year and until further notice, DAAC meetings will be held via ZOOM.To find out if a particular committee spot has any vacant positions, please refer to the membership list provided on DAAC website.
