School Health Advisory Council (SHAC)

  • Fit, Healthy and Ready to Learn.  Research shows that healthy children do better in school - from attendance and behavior to academics and overall performance.

    The Howe ISD School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) works with the district to help support good health and academic achievement and is a school board appointed advisory group of individuals who represent different segments of the community. By law, a majority of the members must be persons who are parents of students enrolled in the district and who are not employed by the district. The Howe ISD SHAC is made up of parents, community members and school staff working together to improve the health of all students and families through coordinated school health programs.

    While a School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) is required by Texas law, it is proven that healthy children learn better and healthy homes and healthy schools support healthy children.
