Student Health Advisory Council

  • A school health advisory council (SHAC) is a group appointed by the school district to serve at the district level. Members of the SHAC come from different areas of the community and from within the school district. The majority of members must be parents who are not employed by the district. Texas law (Texas Education Code, Title 2, Subtitle F, Chapter 28, Subchapter A, §28.004) requires the establishment of a SHAC for every school district.

    A school health advisory council (SHAC) assists the district in ensuring that local community values are reflected in health education instruction. Additionally, the SHAC can help a district meet performance goals and alleviate financial constraints. SHACs play an important role in strengthening the connection between health and learning. They can help parents and community stakeholders reinforce the health knowledge and skills children need to stay healthy for a lifetime.

    The Student Health Advisory Council meets four times a year from 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. on the following days:

    • September 25, 2023
    • November 6, 2023
    • February 5, 2024
    • April 15, 2024

    All meetings will be held at the Pearland ISD Virgil Gant Education Support Center (1928 N. Main Street, Pearland, TX 77581).
