Children and youth who begin each day as healthy individuals can learn more effectively and are more likely to complete their formal education. Responsibility for the physical, emotional, social, mental, and intellectual health of our youth belongs to their families and the entire community. Effective coordinated school health programs can contribute to helping young people avoid health risks by increasing their skills to make responsible choice about behaviors that can affect their health.
The Rosebud-Lott ISD School Health Advisory Council is available to advise the school board and assist the district in ensuring that local community values are reflected in the district’s health education plan. The advisory council will advise and support the school’s efforts to assess their needs and to design programs to help children develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes they need to become healthy, productive citizens.
The advisory council will include parents, students, teachers, school administrators, voluntary organizations, business representatives, health professionals, and other interested, concerned citizens. The SHAC will meet at minimum 4 times during the school year.
