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.
The Texas Department of State Health Services has developed the School Health Advisory Council: A Guide for Texas School Districts [PDF]. This guide provides school staff and community members basic information about the value of SHACs to create a healthy school environment for students.
