School Health Advisory Council

The purpose of the New Braunfels ISD School Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) is to advise the Board of Trustees on various subjects as they relate to the health of students, parents, teachers, employees and community members of New Braunfels ISD. 
  • SHAC is a group of individuals representative of segments of the community, generally appointed by the district Board of Trustees to serve at the district level. They provide advice on coordinated school health programming and its impact on student health and learning. SHAC's provide recommendations specific to changes and/or additions to the school's health education curriculum or instruction that impact the entire school district, not just individual school campuses. School districts use a SHAC to advise them on a variety of topics. It is important to emphasize that SHAC's provide advice and can only make recommendations to the school district Board of Trustees. They are not part of the paid administrative staff or structure of the schools; nor do they have any legal reponsibilities within the school district. However, Texas law requires that every school district have a SHAC and the majority of members must be parents not employed by the school district.

    The most effective SHAC's develop plans that address all eight components of a coordinated school health program including: Health Instruction, Healthy School Environment, Health Services, Physical Education, School Counseling, Food service, School Site Health Promotion for Faculty and Staff and Involvement with Parents and the Community
  • NBISD SHAC Vision Statement:  New Braunfels ISD will have healthier students, staff and families through awareness, support, and implementation of our Coordinated Health Program through the following eight components:  1. Health instruction, 2. Healthy school environment,  3. Health services,  4. Physical education,  5. School counseling,  6. Food service,  7.

    NBISD SHAC Mission Statement:  Our mission is to promote healthy lifestyle choices, create a climate of wellness and safety for students and families in the NBISD community, and to help the District ensure that local community values and health issues are reflected in the District's health education instruction.
