Overview of the Premont ISD School Health Advisory Council
The Texas Education Code requires that every independent school district in Texas establish a School Health Advisory Council (“SHAC”). The purpose of the SHAC is to assist the district in ensuring that local community values are reflected in the district’s health education instruction.
Additionally, pursuant to S.B. 9 (the “Christine Blubaugh Act”), effective December 2, 2021, the SHAC duties will now include recommending appropriate grade levels and curriculum for instruction regarding child abuse, family violence, dating violence, and sex trafficking, including likely warning signs that a child may be at risk for sex trafficking, provided that such recommendation does not conflict with the TEKS.
The Premont ISD SHAC must consider and provide recommendations on:
The superintendent will make ten recommendations to the board for their consideration and possible action. A majority of members must be persons who are parents of students enrolled in Premont ISD schools and who are not employed by Premont ISD. One of those members shall serve as chair or co-chair of the SHAC.
According to statute, the SHAC is required to meet at least four times each year. Pursuant to HB 1525, beginning the 2021-2022 school year, SHAC meetings must follow procedures substantially similar to those required by the Texas Open Meetings Act. Specifically, Section 28.004(d-1) and (d-2).
Premont ISD bylaws shall address membership, resignation, eligibility, officers, voting rights, committees, communications, attendance, virtual attendance, and quorum requirements.
