In Tupelo's PACE classroom, students put themselves back on track

2018 — Away from the traditional setting, students in the PACE classroom move at their own speed to independently work through Apex Learning – a digital curriculum endorsed by the College Board. Richard Trotter, the adult in the room, is more of a facilitator than instructor. Instead of listening to multiple teachers throughout the day, students engage one subject at a time for as many weeks as it takes to finish their eighth-grade course requirements.
