information for parents




What is a School Health Advisory Council?
Every independent school district is required by law to have a SHAC (school health advisory council). The majority of SHAC members must be parents who are not employed by the school district and, as a group, serve as an accurate representation of the school district.

What is included in a coordinated school health program (CSHP)?

The components of a coordinated school health program include:

  • Family and community involvement
  • Nutrition services
  • Physical education
  • Health education
  • Counseling, psychological & social services
  • Health services
  • Health promotion for school staff

Interested in joining SHAC?

The NEISD School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) is seeking new members. Parents and community members play a vital role in our district-wide implementation of our coordinated school health program. Become knowledgeable about district efforts to create healthy learning environments. Read the NEISD Wellness Policy and work with your school's PTA and principal to help implement the policy.
