With COVID-19 still an active threat in our community, PACE classes will be available with safety precautions in place:

  • All classes will be available in an online (OL) and face-to-face (F2F) format. The instruction will come from the classroom in the Lodge, where a limited number of students will be allowed to attend. The rest of the students will join in online.
    • Identify your preference when you send in your registration sheet (F2F or OL). Ex: “CLCP 10 Employment Enjoyment 1 OL” Registration will be first come, first served, with priority given for F2F classes to those who are unable to attend classes OL.
    • Students attending class at the Lodge must: Wear a mask at all times Sign a daily form attesting that they are free of COVID-19 symptoms Maintain a 6’ distance from other people at all times
    • Students are encouraged to set their schedules up so they are NOT at the Lodge at lunch time. Students may not congregate in the commons area during lunch hour. Students will be asked to go outside if they want to remove their masks to eat. With fall weather quickly approaching, it is best for students to plan to be home at lunch time.
    • Only students and designated staff will be allowed in the building. Designated staff must provide documentation affirming their need to be with the student to the front office prior to the start of the quarter.

PACE Services plays an important role in the Spokane Community College's (SCC)  mission by providing job readiness and specialized programs to individuals with obstacles to learning and employment.


PACE Services is not intended to be a day program or drop-in center. It is designed to increase employability and independent living skills.

This program is designed for students to achieve and maintain successful employment. Students taking classes may be referred to an employment specialist, if they are ready to become employed and have funding through the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) or Spokane County Developmental Disabilities

Students need to be 18 years of age or older to apply for services. This requirements excludes PACE Academy students. A high school diploma is not required to participate in the program. PACE serves individuals who experience intellectual/developmental disabilities and/or psychiatric disabilities to reach their vocational and independent living goals.

Students must be able to take care of personal needs, including hygiene, toileting and medication.

PACE Services realizes the importance parents and support staff play in the success of students attending classes. Due to the demand for space in classrooms, it is PACE Services’ policy that only staff mandated to accompany students are allowed in the classroom on a regular basis. Parents and support staff are welcome to arrange to visit the classroom.

PACE Certificate information will be coming soon! Our website is being revised; keep checking back for our updated information.
