Welcome to ROISD School Health Advisory Council (SHAC)
School Health Advisory Council
What is SHAC?
SHAC is a group of individuals, representative of segments of the community, appointed by the school district to serve at the district level. They provide advice on coordinated school health programs and its impact on student health and learning.
Every independent school district is required by law to have a School Health Advisory Council (SHAC); of which, the majority of members must be parents who are not employed by the school district. (Title 2, Chapter 28, Section 28.004 of the Texas Education code)
It is important to emphasize that SHAC provides advice and can only make recommendations to the District's Board of Trustees. They are not part of the paid administrative staff or structure of the schools; nor do they have legal responsibilities within the school district.
