MISSION STATEMENT

Brenham Independent School District is committed to providing a school environment that enhances learning and development of lifelong wellness practices.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF A SCHOOL HEALTH ADVISORY COUNCIL?

  • Federal Public Law (PL 108.265 Section 204) states that by the first day of the 2006 school year beginning after June 30, 2006 all schools must develop a wellness policy that involves parents, students, representatives from the district’s child nutrition department, school board, school administrator and the public...that which compiles the School Health Advisory Council. It was updated in 2010 to include the Health, Hunger Free Kids Act.
  • The School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) will establish a plan for measuring implementation of the local wellness policy.
  • Brenham Independent School District teaches children that eating healthy and being physically active everyday can be fun; the programs has proven that establishing healthy habits in childhood can promote behavior changes that carry into adulthood.
  • The District shall follow nutritional guidelines that advance student health and reduce childhood obesity and shall promote the general wellness of all students through nutrition education, physical activity, and other school-based activities.
