The Board shall establish a local school health advisory council to assist the School in ensuring that local community values and health issues are reflected in the School's health education instruction. The Board shall appoint members to the council, a majority of which must be parents of students enrolled in the School and who are not employed by the School.  The board may also appoint one or more teachers, administrators, students, health-care professionals, members of the business community, law enforcement representatives, senior citizens, clergy, representatives of nonprofit health organizations, or representatives of another group. [See EHAA]


The School shall publish in the Parent and Student Handbook and publish on the School's website a statement of:

  1. Board policies adopted to ensure that elementary school, middle school, and junior high school students engage in physical activity;
  2. The number of times during the preceding year the council has met;
  3. Board policies to ensure compliance with applicable vending machine and food service guidelines for restricting student access to vending machines; and
  4. Board policies and procedures that prescribe penalties for the use of tobacco products by students and others on school campuses or at school-sponsored or school-related activities.
