School Health Advisory Council (SHAC)
The Austin ISD School Health Advisory Council committees are based on the eight components of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) School Health Model www.cdc.gov/healthyyouth/CSHP/
There is a growing body of evidence showing the positive impact of one or more components on student health and learning outcomes. Many school leaders also report that their efforts at coordinating health initiatives result in improved attendance, less smoking among students and staff, lower rates of teenage pregnancy, increased participation in physical fitness activities, and greater interest in healthier diets.
SHAC committee membership is open to any individual interested in supporting health and wellness through development of coordinated school health programs in the AISD community.
