Ohio PACE Mission: Advocate for Adult Career-Technical Education in Ohio and offer Adult Career-Technical educators the information and resources they need to provide outstanding educational opportunities for adults.
Ohio PACE Vision: Be at the forefront of innovative education techniques and processes so that all adult students meet or exceed their educational goals and life expectations while pursuing their career calling.
The Ohio PACE Division believes that the maintenance and preservation of a free society characterized by changing social, economic, and technological advances is dependent upon the nature and quality of education afforded its citizens. In order to further develop and preserve respect for Adult Career-Technical Education as an essential part of public education and specifically:
A. the process of developing employability in a career including a career of balancing work and family.
B. for upgrading and improving the Adult Career-Technical skills of experienced workers and for the retraining necessary for the development of competencies in new or different careers and to develop respect for work, and the free enterprise system.
The Ohio PACE Division affirms that Adult Career-Technical educators are committed to the creation and operation of Adult Career-Technical programs which provide equal opportunities for adults. We also recognize the need for collaboration with other supportive organizations.
