School Health Advisory Council (SHAC)

Texas law (Texas Education Code, Section 28.004) requires the establishment of a School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) for every school district. A SHAC advisory group consists of members from different areas of the community and school district. The SHAC's job is to provide recommendations to the local school board, helping to ensure that the school district's health programs and health education instruction reflect local community values.

School Health Advisory Councils 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.

The council's recommendations and practices strive to align with the following components of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) approach to health and learning as developed by the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • Health Education 

  • Physical Education and Physical Activity 

  • Nutrition Environment and Services 

  • Health Services 

  • Counseling, Psychological, and Social Services 

  • Social and Emotional Climate 

  • Physical Environment 

  • Employee Wellness 

  • Family Engagement

  • Community Involvement
