Consultation is a structured process outlined in SAISD Board Policy which serves as a means by which the District consults with District employees on matters of educational policy and conditions of employment. The San Antonio Alliance of Teachers and Support Personnel is the organization elected by employees to serve as the Consultation organization. Our Alliance Consultation Team meets with the SAISD Administration’s Consultation Team to discuss issues and work towards solutions. There is a Paraprofessional/Classified
Consultation meeting and a Teacher/Professional Consultation meeting each month during the school year.
