Ideally the volunteers would have a background in one of the following areas:  comprehensive school health education, physical education, health services, nutrition services, counseling, psychological or social work, or health promotion for staff and/or family/community experience. Committee members will also act as a representative/liaison for a specific school building. Parents, teachers and community members are encouraged to apply.

SHAC consists of about 20 school district stakeholders who advise school administrators and board members on a variety of health and fitness issues. Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month during the school year. SHAC members serve a three year term.
