School Safety and Health Advisory Council (SSHAC)
The School Safety and Health Advisory Council (SSHAC) is a group of parents and staff members representing all EISD schools that studies relevant issues regarding the health and well-being of students and makes recommendations to the district.
SSHAC activities vary from year to year based on needs identified by Council members and the community. The SSHAC has been involved in promoting substance use prevention programs, promoting mental health and suicide prevention awareness, advising on health curriculum and requirements, and providing information on physical health and safety. The SSHAC also hosts an annual reception for community first responders.
If you are interested in serving, please contact Linda Rawlings, Director of Student Support Services, (512) 732-9020 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Social, emotional and behavioral health is critical to student achievement. The School Health Advisory Council collaboration therefore seeks to share information and to develop and amplify shared messaging about social, emotional and behavioral wellness in order to advocate for students in our districts.
