    The SHAC in Union County was originally established to bridge partnerships between Union County Public Schools, the Union County Board of Education and the Union County Health Department. Members from each of these entities, as well as other stakeholders of the community and LEA comprise our SHAC membership. We meet 3-4 times a year and give recommendations to the UCPS Superintendent and Board of Education.

     

    Promoting healthy and safe behaviors among students is an important part of the fundamental mission or schools. Providing young people with the knowledge and skills they needs to become health and productive adults can increase the students’ capacity to learn, reduce absenteeism, and improve physical fitness and mental alertness                                                                                  Whole Child Diagram
