Welcome from the Executive Director

David PlankI’m pleased to welcome you to the redesigned PACE website. The new site features a comprehensive, fully downloadable archive of PACE publications from 1983 to the present, along with information on current and upcoming activities including our seminars in Sacramento. We think the redesign makes the PACE website more attractive and easier to use, and we look forward to introducing new content and new features over the course of the coming year that will make our site an essential source for information on educational policy in California. For now we welcome your comments and suggestions on the new design, and we hope that you will check back often to find out what’s new as we roll out further improvements.
