Plano Academic and Creative Education (PACE)

Gifted and Talented Program

The deadline for PACE referrals for Kindergarten– grade 5 is

December 9, 2015. Referral packets must be completed, signed, and returned to the Gifted Specialist by 3:00PM. (Of course, you may turn in completed packets prior to the deadline.) You may leave the completed packet with your child’s teacher or the Receptionist, Leigh Ann Hickman. Referrals received after this deadline will be held for the next school year. You may request a referral packet from your child’s classroom teacher or from me.

To insure accurate delivery of PACE test results, please include a self-addressed envelope with your referral. Please address the envelope to YOURSELF (not your child). A stamp is not needed.
