PACE - Parents Advocating Curricular Excellence

PACE is an advocate for curricular excellence in the Jefferson School District.  

PACE began as a group of parents interested in the Challenge program, but broadened its interests to all curriculum issues.

PACE organizes extracurricular enrichment activities for interested students and their families.

For example at the May 8, 1999 meeting, PACE reviewed the Terra Nova testing program, heard an update on curriculum issues from Steve Landfried, and planned summer enrichment activities. At the October 20, 1999 meeting, the speaker was Georgia Florian, the Middle School principal.


The next meeting for the PACE group will be Wednesday, October 31, 7 p.m. in the Middle School Multipurpose room. David Cullen will join us to discuss the Acceleration Policy prepared by PACE and recently adopted by the School Board. Brad Meyers will report on the Strategic Planning retreat held October 3 and 4.  We will also discuss issues or projects of interest for the 2001-2002 school year.  All interested parents of Jefferson School District students are invited to attend.

PACE meets monthly.  All are welcome at PACE meetings.  Meetings are lively and approximately ninety minutes in length.
