Dear PEC Families –
We are excited about the future of PEC, and look forward to meeting you in the coming weeks! Distinctive Schools is honored to have been selected as the new full service Charter Management Organization (CMO) for PEC, and will be on campus frequently in the coming weeks.
Distinctive Schools is a non profit educational practice leader, recognized for our personalized learning model. Our mission is to support each child in becoming an engaged and curious learner, a confident self-advocate, and a creative problem-solver by setting high expectations and nurturing a positive culture that honors diversity, collaboration, and optimism. We build our work on a foundation of joy and kindness, empowering students, families, and staff to contribute to our mission in a meaningful way. Distinctive Schools will be the employer of the wonderful PEC staff and will be held accountable by the PEC board for all day to day operations, strategy, academic oversight, and management.
The first opportunity to meet members of the Distinctive Schools team is Monday, May 13, at 5:00pm! Please join us for a Town Hall Meeting. We can’t wait to hear from you, share information about Distinctive Schools, and enjoy conversation and a light dinner together. We are working closely with the PEC staff to begin designing and planning for next year and we know your feedback will help guide us to continued excellence.
We are eager to build upon the culture and traditions at PEC to continue promoting excellence, innovation and joy for our PEC students. The re-enrollment form can be found here, if you haven’t already responded, please send it in! We are thrilled to welcome back all of our PEC current Kindergarten through rising 8th grade students and any new students joining our community for the 2019-2020 school year. If you know of someone looking to apply to PEC, please share this link to invite them to apply.
