Lago Vista ISD
Student Health & Wellness

School Health Advisory Committee (SHAC)
The health of our children does not depend on major medical breakthroughs, but rather on the everyday practice of good health habits. SHACs provide an efficient, effective structure for creating and implementing an age-appropriate, sequential health education program, and early intervention and prevention strategies that can easily be supported by local families and community stakeholders.

An effective coordinated school health program can:
  • Increase academic achievement
  • Decrease absenteeism and drop-outs
  • Reduce the risk of premature death
  • Decrease health care costs
  • Improve economic productivity and national security
