Vertical Teams

Austin ISD campuses are organized into Vertical Teams that are defined by the Austin ISD administration. They are referenced by the name of the high school, and usually include the elementary and middle schools that feed into that high school.

2019-2020 AISD – ACPTA VERTICAL TEAMS

Each Vertical Team has an ACPTA Vertical Team Coordinator whose volunteer role is to help organize, schedule and run various Vertical Team meetings and trainings throughout the year. Vertical Team “Round Table” Meetings are some of the most important. These involve all school principals, PTA Presidents and ACPTA Delegates at the schools in each Vertical Team. These meetings bring all parties together to share “best practice” activities, District news and specific Vertical Team or school concerns, challenges and opportunities. Our Council works closely with AISD to schedule at least three of these meetings for each Vertical Team during the school year.

All Principals, PTA Presidents and ACPTA Delegates are encouraged to attend the Vertical Team Round Table meetings. This partnership between PTA and AISD provides great opportunities to learn about the exciting activities and positive impacts that other schools within the vertical team have going on at their campuses. The relationships developed through this resource serve to strengthen and empower the Vertical Team as a whole.
