Section 22.1-275.1 of the Code of Virginia states that each school board may establish a school health advisory board of no more than 20 members which shall consist of broad-based community representation including but not limited to, parents, students, health professionals, educators, and others. The board members are committed to creating healthy school environments so students may realize their learning potential.

The School Health Advisory Board (SHAB) is charged to act collectively to advise the school division on broad topics or specific aspects of the coordinated school health program. Areas of concern include, but are not limited to, mental health, school nutrition, health education, health services, physical education, school climate, school safety, violence prevention, and drug and alcohol prevention. 


SHAB is always looking for interested parents and community members to join. The board is made up of 15 voting members. To apply, please complete the online SHAB application, which closes on May 13, 2024.



The SHAB typically meets three times a year at the School Board Office in the Board Room. Please visit BoardDocs, a web-based tool for publishing meeting agendas, minutes, and support documents, and select "School Health Advisory Board (SHAB)" on the top right of the page.
