The Louisiana School Health Advisory Council (LA SHAC) supports the development of healthy school environments across the state. The LA SHAC provides active leadership in the identification and dissemination of school health best practices and resources for school policy makers and educators. When students stay healthy and ready to learn, children develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to become healthy, successful adults. The Louisiana School Health Advisory Council (LA SHAC) was established in 2017 by the Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) and the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH).

The Louisiana School Health Advisory Council is comprised of representatives from the Louisiana Department of Education, Louisiana Department of Health, Pennington Biomedical Research Center, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, school district personnel, students’ family members, and community stakeholders.
