WELCOME to The Texas Association of Community Schools (TACS) website.  TACS represents school districts with no more than one high school or 12,000 ADA.  This means that our membership comprises the small, mid-sized and rural school districts in Texas.  TACS represents more than 700 school districts.  TACS invites your school district to become a member and have a voice in legislation, take advantage of insurance benefits, attend regional conferences, and apply for scholarships.  TACS Corporate Partners and Associate Members are ready to do business with you.

TACS has posted an election update analysis presented at the ESC Region 11 superintendents' conference on Wednesday (11/05).  The power point presentation reviews the changes in the Texas Senate and House of Representatives, as well as suggestions for how local school districts and superintendents can work with their elected officials to benefit our public schools.
