School Health Advisory Council (SHAC)

A School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) is a group appointed by the school district 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 (Texas Education Code, Title 2, Subtitle F, Chapter 28, Subchapter A, §28.004) requires the establishment of a SHAC for every school district.  SHACs are required to meet at least four times each year. 

SHACs assist the districts in ensuring that local community values are reflected in health education instruction.  Additionally, SHACs 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.

In School Health Advisory Council: A Guide for Texas School Districts (Publication N. E05-12431), the Texas Department of State Health Services provides school staff and community members basic information about the value of SHACs in creating a healthy school environment for students.
