All Bertie County students will reach their full personal, health, and academic potential.
The mission of the Bertie School Health Advisory Council is to facilitate opportunities for our students, parents, staff, and the community, to improve their health through effective communication, education and activities. The SHAC will raise awareness and increase participation in positive health practices and activities, thus promoting "Healthy Lifestyles".
The goals of the Bertie SHAC are to:
- Increase parent involvement on the SHAC
- Perform ongoing assessments of the eight areas of coordinated school health
- Help ensure the success of programs designed to prevent obesity, cardiovascular disease, and chronic disease in the district's student and employee population
- Provide recommendations to the Bertie County decision makers about areas of coordinated school health that could be altered to improve the health of Bertie students and staff
Components of Concentration for 23-24
- Physical Education and Physical Activity: Physical education classes and physical activities that promote physical fitness, motor skills, social and personal.
- Health Services: Services provided to students to appraise, protect, and promote health.
- Counseling, Psychological, and Social Services: Services provided to improve students’ mental, emotional, and social health. These services improve the health of the students and the health of the school environment.
