School Health Advisory Council (SHAC)

School Health Advisory Councils (SHAC) is a state-mandated advisory council made up of parents, students, teachers, and community members. The program is based on local needs, resources, standards and values. It is coordinated by a multidisciplinary team that is accountable to the community for program quality and effectiveness by providing a healthy environment along with a wide range of activities to ensure academic success and the development of healthy behaviors. SHAC meets four times a year. If you are interested in becoming a member or attending a meeting, please contact Dr. Lori Nunez, Chief Special Programs Officer, at 817-783-1041.

School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) is implemented because:

  1. Healthy children learn better.
  2. Healthy homes and healthy schools support healthy children.
  3. Schools play an important role in teaching healthy habits.
  4. It is Texas law.

The eight priority components of a coordinated school health program include:

  • Family and community involvement
  • Nutrition services
  • Physical education
  • Health education
  • Counseling, psychological and social services
  • Health services
  • Healthy school environment
