PACE PROGRAM DESCRIPTION & MISSION
The Parent and Community Engagement (PACE) program is comprised of a cohort of school-site coordinators and home office support staff servicing all Magnolia Science Academy’s. To allow every student to reach their full potential, the PACE program is dedicated to empowering all school stakeholders by bringing focus to the needs of the families and communities we serve.
The PACE program mission is to empower school stakeholders to deepen their connection with the families and communities they serve, support advocacy efforts, and develop transformational leaders who are committed to Innovation, Connection, and Excellence.
