School Health Advisory Committee (SHAC)



What is a SHAC?     
The Comfort ISD School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) works to foster a culture of health and wellness for students, families, and staff. Members consist of CISD parents, students, school personnel, and other community members.  Part of Comfort ISD’s District of Innovation (DOI) Plan is for SHAC members to meet two times a year to review Comfort ISD coordinated school health programs and make suggestions on ways we can improve the health and wellness of our Comfort ISD community.

Why Do We Need a School Health Advisory Council?


  1. Research supports that healthy children do better in school- from attendance and behavior to academics and overall performance.  
  2. Schools play an important role in teaching lifelong healthy habits.          
  3. Healthy homes and healthy schools support healthy children.
