What is the School Health Advisory Council (SHAC)?

Texas law (Texas Education Code, Title 2, Subtitle F, Chapter 28, Subchapter A, §28.004) requires the establishment of a SHAC for every school district. A School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) is a group appointed by the school board to serve at the District level to represent the community. Members of the SHAC represent different interests of the community and the school district, but the majority of members must be parents who are not employed by the District. SHACs are required to meet at least four times each year. 



All La Feria ISD students will reach their full personal, health, and academic potential.


The mission of La Feria ISD SHAC is to ensure that all children in La Feria ISD, grades PreK-12, will have healthy bodies and minds through sequential health education, practices, and modeling of good healthy behaviors.


The goal of the La Feria ISD SHAC is to advise La Feria ISD decision-makers regarding students' needs and assets related to health knowledge and skills, regarding policies and procedures that impact student health, and regarding the health of the school environment.  See Texas Education Code 28.004 for specific objectives and duties assigned.  Texas Law (Texas Educatin Code, Title 2, Subtitle F, Chapter 28, Subchapter A, ~28.004)
