Our Two Transition Programs
High School Transition
PACE Services offers a wide variety of noncredit and employment support services for students 18-21 years of age who have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). PACE works with the student, the student’s family and the student’s high school in developing an individualized program. Modeled after the Running Start concept, this service allows the student to move on to a college environment while completing high school. A contract is completed between the Community Colleges of Spokane and the administrative office of the high school the student currently attends.
PACE Summer Academy
PACE Academy includes job exploration, self-advocacy, and post-secondary exploration clubs within contracted high schools for students 14-21 years of age who have an IEP or 16-21 years of age with a 504 plan. PACE Academy occurs during the regular high school academic year. PACE Academy summer program is an eight- week employment immersion that includes four weeks learning workplace readiness skills followed by a four- week paid work-based learning experience. The summer program is for high school students 16-21 years of age with an IEP or 504 plan. This project is made possible through funding from the Washington State Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR).
