ACE Inagural Cohort

Dear ACE Family,

Welcome to the new school year! We are so grateful you have joined us for the 4th year of ACE and the first year of our Leadership Model. Already, through your diligence during summer training, the strong roll out of PD, and your care to campus preparation for students, you have reinforced the belief that greatness is really about people --- "Great schools start with great people. No matter where you go, when you see students inspired to reach for their dreams, you invariably encounter a visionary leader, expert teachers, and dedicated support staff."

Congratulations on your success last year with a combined total of 25 distinctions between the 6 of your schools! You truly made the ACE vision a reality, we look forward to seeing your sustained success as you continue to lead the way.
