Summary

School Health Advisory Councils (SHAC) can assist schools in carrying out their responsibilities for promoting and protecting the health of students and employees. An active SHAC can be an excellent mechanism for parent and community involvement in the schools, and the SHAC provides a way for the schools to utilize valuable professional resources in their communities. This manual was prepared for use by school system personnel and interested community members. It has been designed for individuals seeking information on the development and operation of a SHAC. First, the terms "SHAC" and "coalitions" are defined. Second, the functions of SHACs are listed, followed by steps for beginning a SHAC. Next, responsibilities of the school system are outlined. Criteria for selecting members, and major steps used to select and appoint SHAC members are offered. Three common structures are presented as examples for SHAC structure and community links. Components that should be contained in the by-laws are described. Information is then presented regarding conducting successful meetings and selecting a chairperson. Indications of a healthy SHAC are described, and a checklist is provided to evaluate SHAC functioning. Finally, an outline is offered for structuring the SHAC annual report. (11 references) (LLL)
