    INVITATION TO ATTEND AND PROMOTE SHAC

    2018 / 2019

    SHAC is a group of individuals representing segments of the community and school district which provides advice to the district board on coordinated school health (CSH) programming and its impact on student health and learning.  SHAC is a guide for Texas School Districts that focuses on eight components of Coordinated School Health:

     Nutritional Services   Staff Wellness Promotion

    1. Health Services   Parent/Community Involvement
    2. Healthy/Safe School Environment   Physical Education
    3. Counseling/Mental Health Issues   Health Education

     Every independent school district is required by law (Texas Education Code Title 2, Chapter 28, Section 28.004) to have a School Health Advisory Council (SHAC).  Research suggests that collaboration among families, communities, and school is the most effective approach for prevention and intervention.  Mandates ensure the responsibility for developing and managing programs addressing physical, emotional, and social aspects of health is shared by all segments of the community and reflect community values.

     A majority of SHAC members should be parents of students enrolled in the district who are not employed by the district.  Additional members can be drawn from the community and district employees.  The broader your representation, the better your chances are of meeting the needs of the school/students and the community. 

     WPISD conducts four SHAC meetings per year which will be held at Woods Intermediate Café, following the PTO meetings around 6:30 pm.   Notification of exact dates and times of the meetings will be posted on the district web page.  Anyone and everyone is strongly encouraged to attend/or become a member. 

     If you are interested in becoming a SHAC member, to help promote your child’s and the community’s well- being and wellness, please come join the SHAC.  We are in need of parent and community involvement.  We are looking for parents who are willing to commit to SHAC.  We are very interested in your thoughts and ideas.

     Our next SHAC Meeting will be January 14, 2020.
