School Health Advisory Council
A School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) is a group of individuals appointed by the school district representing the many facets of our school community. The council provides advice on school health programming and it's impact on student health and learning. (Texas Education Code, Title 2, Chapter 28, Section 28.004)
The LISD SHAC serves as an advisory council which provides recommendations, changes, and/or additions to the school’s health education curriculum and instruction for consideration by the LISD Board of Trustees. The council discusses issues and concerns that impact the entire district, not just individual campuses.
The council includes people who represent diverse views in the community about health programs and materials. Parents of students enrolled in the district must be a majority of the council. The council may include teachers, school administrators, students, health care professionals, members of the business community, law enforcement representatives, senior citizens, clergy, or other interested people. The council meets at least four times a year and the meetings are held on Wednesday evenings.
