School Health Advisory Council


Title 2, Chapter 28, Section 28.004 of the Texas Education Code requires school districts to establish a School Health Advisory Council to assist the district in ensuring that local community values are reflected in the district’s health education instruction.

The Castleberry ISD SHAC is a group of individuals representing segments of the community to serve on the district's advisory council which provides recommendations, changes and/or additions to the school’s health education curriculum and instruction for consideration by the Castleberry ISD School Board.

The council investigates and discuss issues and concerns that impact the entire district, not just individual campuses. 

Benefits of Having a SHAC

Addressing the health needs of students through the work of the SHAC, helps meet district performance goals and alleviates financial constraints.

SHACs play an important role in communicating the connection between health and learning to school administrators, parents and community stakeholders.

SHACs provide an efficient, effective structure for creating and implementing age-appropriate, sequential health education programs, and early intervention and prevention strategies that can easily be supported by local families and community stakeholders.

SHACs help parents and community stakeholders reinforce the health knowledge and skills children need to be healthy for a lifetime.
