The Board of Trustees of each school district establishes a local School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) to assist the district in ensuring that local community values are reflected in the districts health education instruction. The council is required to meet at least four times annually and to submit a report to the Board regarding recommendations about the districts health education curriculum and a detailed explanation of the councils activities that year.
Parents of students enrolled in the district are appointed to the SHAC annually by the Board in October. Parents interested in serving on SHAC should contact SHAC Co-Chair Wendi Hatley at 972-882-7413 prior to October 1.
