Why do we have a SHAC?
What is the role of the SHAC?
The EMS ISD SHAC serves as an advisory council which provides recommendations, changes and/or additions to the school’s health education curriculum and instruction for consideration by the EMS ISD Board of Trustees.
The council will look at and discuss issues and concerns that impact the entire district, not just individual campuses.
