PaCE Support Request

To request Postsecondary and Career Expectations (PaCE) support, return a completed PaCE Support Request Form no more than six (6) months and no less than four (4) weeks prior to the event.

We will continue to offer virtual presentations as an option, but we are happy to announce our return to in-person presentations. We will do our best to accommodate requests for in-person presentations based on location and availability of staff. If you have any questions, please contact us at isac.outreachtraining@illinois.gov or isac.pace@illinois.gov.

PaCE Overview (1 hr.) – This session provides an overview of the Postsecondary Workforce Readiness (PWR) Act, an in-depth explanation of the PaCE Framework, the steps involved with creating and implementing your own school/district specific PaCE aligned Framework, as well as PaCE support and resources available through ISAC.

PaCE Framework Development Workshop (2-3 hrs.) – This workshop takes a school/district team through the creation of their own PaCE aligned framework. During the workshop, an ISAC facilitator will lead a discussion with the school/district team in order to build consensus and develop their own framework. Upon completion of the workshop, the school/district team will receive a formatted version of their framework from ISAC as a follow up. A school/district team is required in order to schedule a workshop.

Implementation Support (1 hr.) – These sessions take a school/district team through the implementation of a PaCE Framework. During this series of three, one-hour meetings, an ISAC Staff member will meet with the implementation team to go over the three steps of the implementation process along with guiding them through the completion of the implementation worksheets and help answer any questions they may have. Upon completion of the implementation support, the implementation team will be equipped to implement their PaCE Framework. Only the initial meeting date needs to be included on the request form. The second and third meeting dates can be determined upon completion of the first meeting.
