What is a SHAC?

A School Health Advisory Council (SHAC), sometimes called a “School Health Team”or “Wellness Council,” is a group of individuals who represent both the school and the community.

This group acts collectively to provide guidance on aspects of the school health policies and programs. SHACs can advise a local education agency (district) or an individual school site (elementary, middle, or high school).
