PACE is here to help.
At the request of the district, PACE attorneys come to your site to train district-level staff on state laws and provide sample policies and forms.

PACE can assist with communications to parents, the school community and media, as well as with handling the investigation, the termination of the employment relationship, and the subsequent safety team meetings and trainings.
