    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:
    • assists in the development, review, revision of the district plan
    • reviews major district-wide classroom instructional programs identified by the Board, Superintendent, or his/her designee
    • reviews student performance
    • reviews drop-out information
    • approves portions of the district plan dealing with teacher training
    The DAAC consist 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, very effort is made to select non-staff members representing ethnic, grade, and program diversity.

    The DAAC meets approximately four times a year. All meetings begin at 4:30 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 Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction, Dr. Annette Villerot the chair of the DAAC, with input from the DAAC committee.
      
    DAAC meetings are tentatively scheduled to take place on:
    • Sept. 20
    • Oct. 25
    • Feb. 7, 2017
    • March 21, 2017
    To receive additional information or to join DAAC, please contact Reyna Estrada at 512-594-0130, or your campus principal.

    MEN (Mentoring, Encouraging, Nurturing)

    The mission of PfISD is to provide a quality education with a commitment to excellence by facilitating learning in a safe and nurturing environment. The MEN program in PfISD seeks to support this mission by working with schools to enhance the learning environment and support schools through an active presence of MEN at each PfISD campus and at campus and district activities. The MEN program was founded in 2006 with 37 members, most of them fathers and grandfathers of PfISD students. PfISD continues to add MEN volunteers each year. PfISD provides training for new MEN volunteers each school year. We are looking for volunteers who love children and who have an open mind, a positive attitude and a willingness to work with children and PfISD staff.
