    Mission
    The Fort Worth ISD (FWISD) School Health Advisory Council's (SHAC) mission is to promote sound school policies and practices that will improve and maintain the health and wellness of its students, faculty, and community members.

    Vision
    We envision a future where every child in Fort Worth has the opportunity to live a healthful lifestyle, to be health- and physically-educated, and to transfer that knowledge into action.

    Goals
    Support a healthy and safe school environment that fosters learning.
    Healthy minds and bodies will be promoted through effective school health education and services.
    Academic success will be achieved by empowering our faculty to model healthy behaviors.
    Champion the practice of Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child by effectively implementing the ten components:

    • Health Education
    • Social & Emotional Climate
    • Physical Education
    • Physical Environment
    • Nutrition Environment & Services
    • Employee Wellness
    • Health Services
    • Family Engagement
    • Counseling, Psychological & Social Services
    • Community Involvement

    Purpose of the School Health Advisory Committee
    The purpose of the School Health Advisory committee is to advise the Board of Education on various subjects as they relate to the health of the students, parents, teachers, employees and community members of FWISD.The Committee consists of Health/PE teachers, parents, community and business representatives. State law dictates the make-up of the committee: (d) The board of trustees shall appoint members to the local school health advisory council. A majority of the members must be persons who are parents of students enrolled in the district and who are not employed by the district. The board of trustees also may appoint one or more persons from each of the following groups or a representative from a group other than a group specified under this subsection:

    • public school teachers
    • public school administrators
    • district students
    • health care professionals
    • the business community
    • law enforcement
    • senior citizens
    • the clergy
    • nonprofit health organizations.

    The local school health advisory council's duties include recommending: 1) the number of hours of instruction to be provided in health education; 2) health education curriculum appropriate for specific grade levels that may include a coordinated health education program designed to prevent obesity, cardiovascular disease, and Type II diabetes through coordination of: (A) health education; (B) physical education; (C) nutritional services; (D) parental involvement; and (E) instruction to prevent the use of tobacco; and 3) appropriate grade levels and methods of instruction for human sexuality instruction.
