What is School Health Advisory Council (SHAC)

A SHAC is a group of individuals representative of segments of the community, generally appointed by the school district to serve at the district level. They provide advice on coordinated school health programming and its impact on student health and learning.

SHAC’s provide recommendations specific to changes and/or additions to the school’s health education curriculum or instruction that impact the entire school district, not just individual school campuses.

Every independent school district is required by law to have a School Health Advisory Council. (Title 2, Chapter 28, Section 28.004 of the Texas Education Code)
