Vision Statement
All students attending Sealy ISD will be ensured a safe, healthy environment with appropriate quality information to achieve the highest possible sense of self-control, self-esteem and self-reliance as preparation for adulthood. For this reason the purpose of a comprehensive school health education program is twofold:   first, to consider the total human being in the educational process, and second, to motivate students to help themselves and others to live healthy productive lives by taking an inter-generational approach to learning.

Mission Statement
The mission of the Sealy Independent School District’s SHAC is to ensure that all children in the district, grades PreK-12, will have healthy bodies and minds through continuous health and physical education programs along with good nutrition, teaching them to appreciate and adopt a lifestyle of healthy living.

The goal of the Sealy Independent School District’s SHAC is to advise and actively communicate to Sealy ISD decision-making regarding student and staff needs and education related to health knowledge and skills, policies and procedures that impact student and staff health and the health of the school environment.
