School Health Advisory Committee
  • DEPARTMENT OVERVIEW


    SCHOOL HEALTH ADVISORY COUNCIL (SHAC)

    The School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) for Van ISD functions in compliance with the Texas Education Code, Section 28.004.  The purpose is to assist the district in ensuring that local community values are reflected in the district’s health and wellness education instruction. Research shows that healthy children do better in school - from attendance and behavior to academics and overall performance. Van ISD believes that the ability to learn at school is directly related to the status of a student’s health. We are dedicated to supporting current health initiatives. Together, we can help our students establish healthy behaviors and practice good health habits every day.
