Dear Principals, Counselors, and Parents,
The Mat-Su Borough School District is entering its tenth year of successfully working with students who have been given a long-term suspension from their home school. Positive Alternative for Continuing Education’s (PACE) purpose has always been to help students who are on long-term suspension complete courses they may have failed. Students who participate in PACE can continue their education, learn better coping skills, and improve life choices while making progress academically.
There are several components to PACE:
- APEX Cyber Center/ABLE (Academics)
- Onward and Upward (Physical Education)
- Prime For Life (Intervention for Drug and Alcohol Abuse)
- Community Work Service
PACE is located behind Burchell High School. Students who attend PACE will go through an application process to ensure it is an appropriate placement. It is the priority of PACE to maximize educational advancement, as well as the completion of a portfolio to help them with work, training, and school options after high school.
For students with IEPs or 504s, it is imperative that a manifestation meeting is completed before referring a student to PACE.
For additional information or if you have any questions, please contact me at (907) 864-2628.
