What is the PAC?
The Herbert Spencer Elementary School Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is a committee made up of all the parents of the children at Herbert Spencer school. The primary purpose of the PAC is to represent Herbert Spencer parents and to focus on the best interests of the school students.
The PAC is helping to support all parents to be involved and informed on school issues and to help parents advocate for their children at the staff, school and district levels. The PAC facilitates information sharing and discussion of school issues amongst parents.
The PAC plays a major role in fundraising for the school and initiating and organizing some school activities that might otherwise not be possible based on current school funding. The PAC also periodically prepares Grant proposals applying for government funding for specific initiatives.
