PACE Program

Personalized Academic Curriculum Everyday
The Village, Veterans, and High School, Grades 4 through 8

The PACE Program is a full day special education program for students in grades four, five and six to address the comprehensive needs of students with significant neurological/cognitive disabilities whose current level of instructional need is at least two years below grade level. Communication, functional academics, social development and self-help skills are the main focus of the PACE Program.
As students demonstrate progress in these skills, they are introduced to activities (both social and academic) involving typical peer interaction to target generalization of skills to the general education environment.
