School Health Advisory Committee

School Health Advisory Committee

In 2005, the 79th legislature passed SB42. This comprehensive school health education package focused on a number of significant issues; one of which was the establishment of a state-level School Health Advisory Committee at the Department o f State Health Services (DSHS). The text of the statute, now codified in the Health and Safety Code, can be found at http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us , Title 12 of Chapter 1001, Subchapter D, Section 1001.0711: SCHOOL HEALTH ADVISORY COMMITTEE.

TSHAC Guiding Principles

    Texans will guide the work of this committee.

    Support a healthy and safe school
    environment that fosters learning.
  • We will dedicate our efforts to goals that will produce
    Healthier minds and bodies through effective school
    health education and services.
  • Achieving
    Academic success by providing leadership to those
    who teach and empower our students will be our
    sustaining and overarching charge.
  • We will champion the practice of
    Coordinated School Health to effectively reach our
    goals and objectives through the eight components
    of coordinated school health programming.
