Keeping the PACE

Summer Vol 9 Issue 3

The Fort Bend Association of Parents for Academic Excellence

Established in 1990, PACE is a 501c3 non-profit parent support group whose purpose is to promote and encourage academic excellence in the Fort Bend Independent School District with a particular emphasis on gifted and talented education. PACE is not affiliated with FBISD, but is proud of our longstanding collaborative efforts to support and promote student success.
