School Health Advisory Council (SHAC)

Under the direction of Senate Bill 1357 (2003 Legislative Session) Section 28.004, the School Health Advisory Council, (SHAC) is a group of individuals representing segments of the community, who are appointed by the school district to provide advice to the district on coordinated school health programming and its impact on student health and learning.

SHAC provides 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. The purpose of the SHAC is also to assist the district in ensuring that local community values and health issues are reflected in the districts' Human Growth and Development lessons. The council meets 4 times a year, twice during the fall semester and twice during the spring.

Interested in joining SHAC?
The Benjamin ISD 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
