The PACE Program

PACE (People Accessing Careers and Education) is a non-credit program at Spokane Community College that provides classes for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities who want to develop skills for employment or further education.

The PACE Program is part of the Adult Education Division at Spokane Community College. The Adult Education Division is responsible for foundational skills such as, reading, writing, math, and technology. The goal is for students to build their skills in preparation for further study or to begin a career.

Programs offered through this division are funded through the Title II Adult Education and Family Literacy Act components of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014.

Student Eligibility

  • Have an intellectual or developmental disability.
  • Be at least 18 years old.
  • Ability to safely and independently navigate the college campus after initial orientation.
  • Independently take care of personal care needs including hygiene, toileting and medication.
  • Agree to follow the Student Code of Conduct.
  • Attend class and meetings as scheduled.
  • Mandatory enrollment in the College Life Skills course in the first quarter. Students must pass this class within 3 attempts.

Student Responsibilities

  1. Students enroll in classes to make progress towards earning the PACE Certificate.
  2. Students are encouraged to take classes back-to-back and to not have more than a 1 hour break in their class schedule.
  3. Do your best, do homework, and prepare for class every day.
  4. Come to class every day. Tell your teacher if you are sick or have an emergency.

PACE Certificate

The PACE Certificate is designed to build workplace readiness skills which can be applied to a future career, volunteer work, or other community engagement activities. The Certificate is designed to help students achieve the following four outcomes:

  1. Apply critical thinking skills to form opinions and conclusions.
  2. Demonstrate leadership and teamwork skills.
  3. Demonstrate workplace readiness skills.
  4. Develop and use digital literacy skills.

Across these four outcome areas, the PACE Certificate is composed of 90 credits. To earn these 90 credits and graduate with a PACE Certificate, students have the opportunity to complete a total of 30 three-credit classes. A student taking a full-time courseload (15 credits per quarter) can earn the PACE Certificate in approximately two years or six academic quarters.
