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.

Another important role of the PAC is in 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.
