In light of the spread of COVID-19, and the closing of school districts, PACE has decided to extend the deadline of our Safety Star Awards program, to give districts more time to apply for this monetary grant.
About PACE Awards . . .
As we all work together to create safe environments for students and staff and to keep insurance costs low, we recognize there are programs and individuals that contribute greatly to the success of the PACE program by reducing liability, avoiding claims and thus saving the pool money.
The PACE Awards Program recognizes achievements that allow members to better serve the students of Oregon. From the group of award recipients, one will be chosen to be the "Safety Star" - and will be awarded $5,000 in grant funds to implement a safety program, as approved by PACE risk management staff.
Nominate an individual or member program by March 12, 2021.
