Marshall ISD Health Services seeks to promote wellness-based school policies and practices that will improve and maintain the health and wellness of its students, employees and community members. 

We envision a future where every child in Marshall has the opportunity to live a healthy life, where they learn health and physical activities for use now and in the future.

A SHAC (School Health Advisory Council) is a school board-appointed advisory group of individuals who represent different segments of the community. By law, a majority of the members must be persons who are parents of students enrolled in the district and who are not employed by the district. SHACs assist the districts in ensuring that local community values are reflected in health education instruction. Additionally, SHACs can help districts meet performance goals and alleviate financial constraints. SHACs play an important role in strengthening the connection between health and learning. They can help parents and community stakeholders reinforce the knowledge and skills children need to stay healthy for a lifetime.

Marshall ISD SHAC goals for the 2017-2018 school year are:

• Continue the Triple M Backpack program on all Elementary Campuses

• Continue to offer the ESTEEM Abstinence Curriculum 5th -9th grade

• Continue to raise awareness and educate students, parents, and our community about serious issues of underage drinking, distracted driving, and drugs by offering an information fair.

• Build the success of Marshall ISD’s School Health Advisory Council by building cohesive membership and project committees, expand communication through social media to increase networking possibilities in hopes to strengthen the success of the council’s efforts.
• Explore other options to meet employee and student wellness needs.
