PACE Referral Information

  • PACE serves students who, based upon a preponderance of evidence gathered during the assessment process, perform at or show the potential to perform at or above the second standard deviation from the mean on standardized ability and achievement tests. After reviewing the data and information for each candidate, decisions are made on an individual basis by a trained campus committee. The district does not place a 'cap' on PACE enrollment. Plano ISD is unable to use assessment conducted outside of a school environment such as that conducted by a private counselor or clinician when making decisions for Plano ISD students

    Elementary students are assessed in the first semester for services beginning in February. 

    You can access the online referral form by visiting  Paper copies of referral forms will be available by request.  Please contact the gifted specialist at your child's campus.   

    PACE REFERRALS ARE DUE FRIDAY, October 20th, 2023 by 5:00 P.M.
