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.

Today, during the School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) meeting, we unfortunately experienced an incident that required our immediate attention and action.

Regrettably, some attendees during the online meeting displayed inappropriate content on their screens instead of identifying themselves or using a blank screen. We want to express our sincere apologies for any discomfort or offense this may have caused to those present during the meeting.

We understand the importance of maintaining a safe and respectful environment during all school-related activities, and we take this matter very seriously. Our team is currently investigating the incident, and we will be taking appropriate actions.

The meeting is being recorded and will be posted on the SHAC website as normal. 

We want to assure you that we are committed to maintaining a positive and inclusive environment for all participants in our school community. Incidents like this do not reflect the values of our school district, and we are dedicated to taking steps to prevent such occurrences in the future.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.


El día de hoy, durante la reunión del Consejo Asesor de Salud Escolar (SHAC, por sus siglas en inglés), lamentablemente hemos experimentado un incidente que ha requerido nuestra atención y acción inmediatas.

Lamentablemente, algunos asistentes durante la reunión en línea mostraron contenido inapropiado en sus pantallas en lugar de identificarse o utilizar una pantalla en blanco. Queremos expresar nuestras más sinceras disculpas por cualquier molestia u ofensa que esto haya podido causar a los presentes durante la reunión.

Somos conscientes de la importancia de mantener un entorno seguro y respetuoso durante todas las actividades relacionadas con la escuela, y nos tomamos este asunto con seriedad. Nuestro equipo está investigando el incidente y tomaremos las medidas correspondientes.

La reunión se está grabando y se publicará en el sitio web de la SHAC con normalidad. 

Queremos asegurarles que nos comprometemos a mantener un entorno positivo e integrador para todos los participantes en nuestra comunidad escolar. Incidentes como este no reflejan los valores de nuestro distrito escolar, y estamos dedicados a tomar medidas para prevenir este tipo de incidentes en el futuro.

Gracias por su comprensión y cooperación.
