School Health Advisory Committee (SHAC)

What is SHAC?

The School Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) is a group comprised of parents, students, staff and community members. The group acts collectively to provide advice to the Superintendent and Board of Trustees on aspects of the school district's health program. The members of SHAC are generally selected in three ways:

  • Recruitment - The SHAC members actively seek out new members to join.
  • Appointment - Individuals selected by the School Board or District Administration
  • Volunteer - Parent and community members volunteer their time because they desire to be involved

What do they do?

As an advisory committee, the SHAC provides advice on coordinated school health programming and its impact on student health and learning.  School health focuses on health and physical education, a healthy school environment, health and nutrition services, counseling services, staff wellness promotion and parent and community involvement. The advisory council members serve as health advocates and only present information to the School Board and Superintendent and are not a decision-making or policy-enforcing committee.
