The Gainesville ISD School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) is a group of dedicated individuals representing segments of the community, to provide advice to the district on coordinated school health programming and its impact on student health and learning. The SHAC assists the district in ensuring that local community values are reflected in the district's health education instruction.
SHACs provide an efficient, effective structure for recommending age-appropriate, sequential health education programs, and early intervention and prevention strategies that can easily be supported by local families and community stakeholders. Every independent school district is required by law to have a SHAC. The majority of members must be parents who are not employees of the GISD. All parents are invited to attend the SHAC meetings.
The SHAC will meet four times throughout the year: September 20, October 18, February 7, March 20. All meetings will be held at the administration building from 5:30 - 6:30 pm.
