PACE Program

Referrals for PACE:

PACE serves students who, based upon a preponderance of evidence gathered during the assessment process, perform at or show the potential to perform at or above the second standard deviation from the mean on standardized ability and achievement tests. After reviewing the data and information for each candidate, decisions are made on an individual basis by a trained campus committee.

The district does not place a 'cap' on PACE enrollment. Plano ISD is unable to use assessment conducted outside of a school environment such as that conducted by a private counselor or clinician when making decisions for Plano ISD students. Elementary students are assessed in the first semester for services beginning in the spring semester.

Access the Online Referral Form at this link: PACE Elementary Referral. Paper copies of referral forms (English & Spanish) will be available at each campus upon request. Referral Forms are due on October 20th by 5:00 PM. Please contact Meg Keierleber at meg.keierleber@pisd.edu for more information.
