SHAC with the words School Health Advisory Council underneath it with pictures of activities

A School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) is a group of parents and community members, appointed by the school board to serve at the district level. Members of the SHAC come from different areas of the community and from within the school district. The majority of members must be parents who are not employed by the district. Texas law requires the establishment of a SHAC for every school district. SHACs are required to meet at least four times each year.

The School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) will address the continued implementation of a coordinated health program including health education, physical education, health services, nutrition services, counseling, health school environment, staff health promotion, and family/community involvement.
