• School Health Advisory Council (SHAC)

    A School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) is a group appointed by the school district to serve at the district level.

    • Members of the SHAC come from different areas of the community and from within the school district.
    • Texas law requires the establishment of a SHAC for every school district.
    • SHACs are required to meet at least four times each year. 
    • SHACs assist the districts in ensuring that local community values are reflected in health education instruction.
    • SHACs play an important role in strengthening the connection between health and learning.
    • They can help parents and community stakeholders reinforce the knowledge and skills children need to stay healthy for a lifetime.
