PANAMA CITY Fla. - Schools in Bay County are back into a routine after Hurricane Michael, so the county's School Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) made a plan for the rest of the school year. They discussed the transition from the Florida Department of Health to Pancare for health services.

According to school board officials, Pancare has been able to complete audits and health assessments for 4 schools, since the storm hit. A sign the school health system is getting back on it's feet.

Pamm Chapman, Bay District School Board Vice Chairman and SHAC Liason said there will be a new health program offered in response to Hurricane Michael. "We have a crisis response team that's actually gonna be available January 7th. And that is some counselors that are gonna be on call 24/7 for different scenarios, especially with Hurricane Michael."

In addition to this service, many community members wanted to see more life management classes added to school curriculum;  such as hygiene, sex education, and tobacco addiction prevention. Classes that are considered a necessity to fill in the gaps of what is not taught in the classroom.
