The School Health Advisory Council assists the district in ensuring that local community values are reflected in the district's health education instruction. The SHAC is responsible for making policy recommendations to the board on a wide variety of issues regarding student health in the district programming and curriculum, including: the number of hours of instruction to be provided in health education; appropriate policies, procedures, strategies, and curriculum to prevent physical and mental health concerns, including obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and suicide; strategies for integrating health curriculum components in a coordinated school health program for the district.  The SHAC is also responsible for providing appropriate educational information to help increase parental awareness regarding risky student behaviors and early warning signs of suicide risk and behavioral health concerns, including mental health disorders and substance use disorders.

Notably, the SHAC is also responsible for making recommendations to the board regarding appropriate grade level and methods of instruction for human sexuality instruction and for instruction on child abuse, family violence, dating violence, and sex trafficking.
