The Masconomet School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) works to promote and protect the health, wellness and safety of all our students. The Council works in collaboration with Tri-Town Council, Tri-Town School Union, our families and our community to collect and analyze data. Based on the conclusions drawn, SHAC advises all interested shareholders by providing information, making recommendations for new or revised policies, and suggesting additional programming in order to enhance existing school curricula and services.
The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child ModelSHAC uses the Whole Child Model as the basis to set goals and objectives in working to improve the health and learning of all our students. This model is an update of the Coordinated School Health Model that we used in the past by incorporating the tenets of the ASCD's* whole child approach. Research shows that the health of students is linked to their academic achievement. Using this model, schools, health agencies, parents and communities share the common goal of supporting the health and academic achievement of adolescents. Please click on the link below to see a diagram of this model.Working collaboratively in this holistic manner, with a variety of members from school and community sectors, SHAC is a strong advocate for student health and wellness. Some of our members include:
- Guidance Counselors
- Community members
- Food Services
