Wellness Procedures and Guidelines

Coordinated School Health convenes the School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) a minimum of 4 times a year.  Members of the SHAC come from different areas of the community and from within the school district.  SHACs assist the district in ensuring that local community values are reflected in health education instruction. Additionally, SHACs can help districts meet performance goals and play an important role in strengthening the connection between health and learning. They can help parents and community stakeholders reinforce the knowledge and skills children need to stay healthy for a lifetime.  A major role of the MCPS SHAC is the approval, assessment, and assessment of required wellness policy and procedures.
