HISTORY

 

The Pittsburgh Assistance Center for Educators and Students (PACES) incorporated in early 2013 and is exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. During this exciting time, we are implementing programs, analyzing how to make resources more readily available to Pittsburgh students and educators, and building a volunteer base.

 

Tackling Challenges to Education

PACES reflects the experiences of local teachers and parents who identified a need for resources, supplemental programs, and strengthened community ties to schools. PACES believes by supporting teachers, engaging the community in its children’s education, and providing needed resources and programs, the educational experience and outcomes will improve for Pittsburgh-area students. As budget, assessment, safety, and accountability issues continue to mount in local schools, PACES hopes to provide valuable and meaningful aid to students and educators.
