Katy Independent School District

Health & Physical Education

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​School Health Advisory Council (SHAC)

Under the direction of Senate Bill 1357 (2003 Legislative Session) Section 28.004, the School Health Advisory Council, (SHAC) is a group of individuals representing segments of the community, who are appointed by the school district to provide advice to the district on coordinated school health programming and its impact on student health and learning.

SHAC provides an efficient, effective structure for creating and implementing age-appropriate, sequential health education programs, and early intervention and prevention strategies that can easily be supported by local families and community stakeholders. The purpose of the SHAC is also to assist the district in ensuring that local community values and health issues are reflected in the districts', Human Growth and Development lessons. The council meets 4 times a year, twice during the fall semester and twice during the spring.

The coordinated health program that Katy ISD implements K-8 is the CATCH (Coordinated Approach To Child Health). This program is an evidence-based Coordinated School Health Program designed to promote physical activity and healthy food choices, and prevent tobacco use in elementary school-aged children. By teaching children that eating healthy and being physically active every day can be FUN, the CATCH Program has proven that establishing healthy habits in childhood can promote behavior changes that can last a lifetime.
