School Planning Advisory Council (SPAC)
Based on an interlocal agreement between Alachua County Public Schools and area municipalities, the School Planning Advisory Committee (SPAC) is convened whenever the district is considering major facilities projects that would involve changing the capacity of an existing school, the building of a new school or the closure of an existing school. The SPAC reviews the relevant information and provides input as the Superintendent prepares a recommendation for the School Board.
The SPAC is made up of representatives from Alachua County Public Schools, Alachua County Government and city governments in the area, as well as citizens that each of those entities have chosen to represent them.
Currently the SPAC is reviewing the potential closure of existing schools, particularly Terwilliger Elementary School.
