PACE Program

Interested in Joining PACE?

Interested families should contact their feeder school to sign up for a tour of their PACE program via the email address listed under Contacts.  Once a family has attended a tour, they can submit an application to join the lottery for enrollment.

Important Upcoming Dates:

  • Tuesday, October 22, 7:00 PM - PACE Open House/Information Night at Lockwood, Wellington, and Woodmoor. Tours of the program will begin after the Open House/ Information Night.

Parents Active in Cooperative Education (PACE) is a choice program available to all Northshore elementary families.

PACE is committed to an enriched learning environment emphasizing active participation of parents, innovative teaching techniques, and creating a unique partnership of teachers, parents and students.

Our focus is to create a unique learning environment that includes:

  • Enrichment activities and active parent participation to support each student's learning style and developmental rate.
  • Encouragement of students to be independent and self-motivated learners.
  • Full access to all school activities and events including PE, music, and library, assemblies and after-school activities.

All PACE programs meet the curriculum requirements of the Northshore School District.

Family Commitment

PACE families must contribute a minimum of 80 hours of volunteer work per year to support the program. Work may be either in the classroom or outside the classroom, based on parent's availability and interest.



If you are interested in enrolling in the PACE program, please contact the enrollment coordinator at the site serving your neighborhood feeder pattern. There is an application process and placement is determined in a blind lottery in late winter, based upon your current address.
