• School Health Advisory Council

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines a School Health Advisory Council as “an advisory group composed primarily of school, health, and community representatives who act collectively to advise the school district on aspects of child health as defined by the Coordinated School Health (CSH) Model.” The School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) provides advice to the district on the impact on student health and learning of the following components of a coordinated school health program:
    • Health Education
    • Healthy School Nutrition
    • Physical Education
    • School Health Services
    • Guidance, Counseling, and Social Service
    • Healthy School Environment
    • Staff Wellness
    • Family and Community Involvement
    The Lincoln Public Schools' SHAC meets on a regular basis during the school year and its membership includes teaching staff, social workers, school nurses, the Food Service Director, parents and a community representative. Meetings are open to the school community. For more information or to share a concern or idea, please contact Maureen Richichi, Chairperson, at 781-259-9407 or mrichichi@lincnet.org
