What is a School Health Advisory Council (SHAC)?
A SHAC is a group of individuals representative of segments of the community, appointed by the Board of Trustees, to serve at the district level. SHACs provide advice to the district on coordinated school health programming and its impact on student health and learning. The SHAC will assist the district in ensuring that local community values are reflected in the district’s health education instruction.
SHACs provide an efficient, effective structure for recommending age-appropriate, sequential health education programs, and early intervention and prevention strategies that can easily be supported by local families and community stakeholders.
Benefits of Having a SHAC
Title 2, Chapter 28, Section 28.004 of the Texas Education Code outlines the law regarding SHACs. The entire Texas Education Code can be obtained online at: http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/ .
