A SHAC is a group of individuals that represents segments of the community, generally appointed by the school district to serve at the district level. They provide advice on coordinated school health programming and its impact on student health and learning.
SHACs provide recommendations specific to changes and/or additions to the school’s health education curriculum or instruction that impact the entire school district, not just individual school campuses. School districts use a SHAC to advise them on a variety of topics.
It is important to emphasize that SHACs provide advice and can only make recommendations to the school district Board of Trustees. Texas law requires that every school district have a SHAC and the majority of members must be parents not employed by the school district.
