Health & Wellness
Research shows that healthy children do better in school from attendance and behavior to academics and overall performance. Chillicothe ISD believes that the ability to learn at school is directly related to the status of a student’s health. We are dedicated to supporting current health initiatives. Together, we can help our students establish healthy behaviors and practice good health habits every day. For additional information concerning school health and safety, please visit the Texas Department of State Health Services.

A School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) is a group appointed by the school district to serve at the district level. Members of the SHAC come from different areas of the community and from within the school district. The majority of members must be parents who are not employed by the district. Texas law (Texas Education Code, Title 2, Subtitle F, Chapter 28, Subchapter A, §28.004) requires the establishment of a SHAC for every school district. SHACs are required to meet at least four times each year.
SHACs assist the districts in ensuring that local community values are reflected in health education instruction. Additionally, SHACs can help districts meet performance goals and alleviate financial constraints. SHACs 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.
