School Health Advisory Council

The School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) is a volunteer advisory group that collectively acts to provide recommendations to the Round Rock ISD Board of Trustees. The council’s purpose is to ensure community values, and local health issues are reflected in the District’s health education policies and instructions.

SHAC committees address all factors of the District’s school health program.

  • Nutrition and fitness
  • Health education
  • Health services and general well-being
  • Parent and community involvement
  • Healthy and safe school environment

The local school health advisory council’s duties include recommending:

  • The number of hours of instruction to be provided in health education
  • Health education curriculum appropriate for specific grade levels that may include a coordinated health education program designed to prevent obesity, cardiovascular disease, and Type II diabetes
  • Instruction to prevent smoking and substance abuse.
  • Appropriate grade levels and methods of instruction for human sexuality education.
