What is the School Health Advisory Council?


A SHAC (School Health Advisory Council) is a school board appointed advisory group of individuals who represent different segments of the community. By law, a majority of the members must be persons who are parents of students enrolled in the district and who are not employed by the district. The AISD SHAC is made up of parents, community members, students, and school staff working together to improve the health of all students and families through coordinated school health programs. Texas law requires all school districts to have a SHAC.

The AISD School Health Advisory Council meets on the first Wednesday of every month from 6:30pm - 8:00pm in the Carruth Auditorium Board Room at 1111 West Sixth Street, unless otherwise noted. Membership to the SHAC is by annual school board appointment. Meetings are open to all interested persons. 

Anyone wishing to speak during the Citizens Communication portion of the meeting must read the Citizens Communications Guidelines and must complete a Speaker and Comment Card prior to speaking.

The work of SHAC is carried out by its committees, which include: Family & Community Involvement, Nutrition, Physical Education & Activity, Health Education, Social & Emotional Wellness, Health Services, Healthy School Environment, and Staff Wellness.
