Governance

The University of Texas Elementary School was initiated by The University of Texas System through the Institute for Public School Initiatives to support K-12 education. UT Elementary is an academic unit of The University of Texas at Austin, and therefore reports to the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement. 

Direct oversight of the school is operated by the UT Elementary School Management Board, which includes school parents, community members, and representatives from the University as well as the school principal and executive director. The Board convenes monthly during the school year to deliberate on initiatives related to the school. The Education Council, also comprised of parents, teachers, UT faculty, and community representatives, determines the campus education plan each year and consistently monitors its implementation.

The university prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, sex, genetic information, or age in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, financial aid, employment, or any other school program or activity. The school also makes good faith efforts to recruit, employ and promote qualified minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, and veterans. It admits qualified students to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students.
