What is SHAC?
The Manor ISD School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) is an advisory group comprised of individuals who represent segments of the community. The group acts collectively to provide advice to MISD on aspects of the school district's health and wellness program.
Research shows that healthy children do better in school-from attendance and behavior to academics and overall performance. SHAC is an exciting partnership that exists between MISD and members of the Manor community. This council, made up of parents, community members, students, school health personnel and teaching staff, provide advice to the district in ensuring that community values and local health issues are reflected in the district's health education policies and instruction. Parents and community members are always welcomed and encouraged to join the council.
What does the SHAC do?
The SHAC should have a variety of committees addressing all components of a comprehensive school health program that include representatives from each area. Components include:
*Counseling, Psychological & Social Services
*Healthy School Environment
*Health Promotion for Staff
Meetings will be held quarterly. If you are interested in participating on the School Health Advisory Council, please contact Rebecca Lott, MISD Student and Family Support Services Director, at 512-278-4462 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
