School Health Advisory Council

What is SHAC?

The School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) is an advisory group comprised of individuals, parents, and school staff who represent segments of the community. The group acts collectively to provide advice to the CISD on aspects of the school district’s health program.


What do they do?

The SHAC has a variety of roles addressing all components of a comprehensive school health program. The components include:

  • Health instruction (human sexuality)
  • Healthful school environment
  • Health services
  • Physical education
  • School counseling
  • Food Service
  • Health promotion for staff
  • Family and Community involvement


Why do we need a School Health Advisory Council (SHAC)?

It’s Texas law: Title 2, Chapter 28, Section 28.004 of the Texas Education Code.
