School Health Leadership Group (SHLG)
The SHLG was recently awarded a certificate
of Promising Practice by the National Association of County
&City Health Officials (NACCHO)!
The SHLG is a group of recognized school health
leaders from each Harris County Independent School District who
are invited to participate in tri-annual meetings to discuss
local public health issues, state and federal laws and policies
related to school health, and best practices. Opportunities to
network with others who work in a similar position at another
school district and receiving the latest information about
school health issues are often mentioned as two of the best
aspects about this group.
The goals for the SHLG are as follows:
and enhance effective communication and partnerships with school
district leaders and stakeholders.
resources, technical support and networking opportunities for
district leaders to promote knowledge of coordinated
school health issues,
best practices, policies, and laws.
the capacity of district leaders’ skills to create change in the
environment by modifying determinants related to health
