To assist the school in ensuring that all children, grades Pre- K through12, will receive appropriate health education instruction, which accurately reflects the current health issues and local community values. We will provide sensible, well-considered strategies for integrating/improving school health services, counseling and guidance services, safe and healthy school environment, and employee wellness. SHAC Vision The primary function of a school is to provide students with the learning experiences necessary for maximum intellectual development. Children must be healthy to be educated and must be educated to be healthy. This process is limited by the child’s emotional, social, and physical health. For this reason, the purpose of a comprehensive education program is to consider the total human being in the educational process and to encourage students to help themselves develop attitudes and skills that improve their capacity to learn, attain good health, and achieve productive lives.
School Health Advisory Councils
School Health Advisory Councils play a major role in assisting school districts to develop effective school health programs. The council members serve as resources to the district, providing expertise from the private sector and input from representatives of the local community. Each school district will establish a health advisory council to assist in developing objective policies in accordance with community needs. This council serves in an advisory capacity and does not have any legal responsibilities within the school system. The SHAC/Nutrition Team is required to meet at least 4 times per school year. These meetings are open to the public. For more information or if you are interested in becoming a member, please contact Lynn Crabb,
RN, School Nurse at 512/898-5579.
