School Health Advisory Council

Purpose : To provide an efficient, effective structure for implementing health education and early intervention and prevention of unhealthy risk behaviors developed early in life.

What is SHAC? A SHAC is a group of individuals representing segments of the community and school district which provides coordinated school health (CSH) programming and its impact on student health and learning.

Membership: Every independent school district is required by law to have a school health advisory council (SHAC) of which the majority of members must be parents who are not employed by the school district. The SHAC is annually appointed by the local education agency Board of Trustees.

Members may include:

Meetings: Senate Bill 283: The council is required to meet at least four times a year and must annually submit recommendations regarding the district's health education curriculum. The last meeting was August 20, 2016. Future meetings are tentatively scheduled for the following months:




Officer: Chair person: Vickie Macias R.N. (Itasca ISD school nurse)

Member: Mark Parsons

Member: Lisa Brown

Member: Holli Merkel

Member: Karen Taber

Member: Tatum Goldsmith

Voting procedures : The voting process is as follows: One-half of the members must be present for a vote to be taken and two thirds must vote for a motion for approval.

Committees: To be assigned as needed.

Communications: All S.H.A.C. activities and communications as well as reporting procedures should be routed through the designated contact person. At this time, the contact person is the Chair person.

Amendments: The procedure to be used for amending bylaws, has not yet been determined.

Philosophy Statement: The primary function of a school is to provide students with the learning experiences necessary for maximum intellectual development. The success of this process is affected by the child's emotional, social and physical health. For this reason the purpose of coordinated school health programming is twofold: first, to consider the total human being in the educational process, and second, to motivate students to help themselves and others to live healthy, productive lives.
