• The Anoka-Hennepin Chemical Health Advisory Committee (CHAC) formed in June 2017. Meetings typically take place the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Anoka-Hennepin Educational Service Center.


    The mission of the CHAC is:

    To promote a safe and welcoming environment and well-being of our students’ chemical health
    through education, prevention and awareness.


    The vision of the CHAC is:

    To have students embrace a healthy lifestyle free from the misuse and abuse of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.


    Goals:

    • CHAC will regularly review and analyze current alcohol and other drug use and trends both
      locally, statewide, and nationally.
    • CHAC will provide a venue for creating campus collaborations on alcohol and drug
      education programming and prevention efforts.
    • CHAC will make recommendations for the Student Services Department and School Board
      concerning alcohol and other drug issues (consistent with School Board Policy 533 - Student
      Wellness).

     

    Prevention works best when attention is given to multiple risk and protective factors and when support and education are available. The Anoka-Hennepin School District believes that by promoting and supporting chemical health prevention, we help ensure that our students have every opportunity to be successful both personally and academically.
