School Health Advisory Councils
What is a School Health Advisory Council (SHAC)?
A SHAC is a group of individuals representing segments of the community, appointed by the school district to 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.
If you are interested in joining the District SHAC or your child's campus SHAC group, please contact Darelle Jordan, District Nurse at 512-847-5729 ext. 4249
