Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!
I am writing to update you about membership on the Superintendent Parent Advisory Committee (SPAC). The SPAC meets monthly during the school year on the first Monday from 6:30 -8:30 p.m. The first meeting of this school year will be held on September 9, 2019.
The purpose of the SPAC is to provide two-way communication between parents and the Superintendent. At each meeting, I provide information about various topics related to the district and respond to parent's questions. Each parent gives a short report about activities at their school. Special topics identified by the SPAC parents are presented at meetings by district staff.
Each school selects a parent to represent their school and an alternative in the event the·SPAC representative cannot attend a meeting. In the past, the SPAC representative from each school has often been a member of the school's Home and School Club (HSC).
This school year, the membership will be expanded to include one representative (and alternative) from the HSC and one member (and alternative) at-large. If you are interested In joining the SPAC as a member-at-large, please submit your name to your principal by August 28. 2019. The member-at-large (and alternative) will be selected through a lottery process.
Thank you for your time and have a wonderful year.
Dr. Deborah A. Flores, Ph.D.
Superintendent, Gilroy Unified School District
