What is a School Health Advisory Council? 
School Health Advisory Council is an advisory group of individuals who represent segments of the community. The group acts collectively to provide advice to the school system on aspects of the school health program. Seguin ISD SHAC was established in 2005 in accordance with Senate Bill 19 and the Texas Education Agency.

The Seguin ISD School Health Advisory Council is made up of parents, SISD students, community leaders, local health officials as well as SISD administrators, nurses, food service director and teaching staff.

What does the SHAC do? 
The SHAC is designed to address all components of a comprehensive school health program. These components include health instruction, health services, physical education, school counseling, child nutrition, food service, school site health promotion for faculty and staff, and integrated school/community programs.
