Since its inception in 1969, Diversity and Inclusion have been at the forefront of who ACES is as an agency. Having started off as a program for special needs children, ACES has grown into an agency of 950 plus skilled staff members providing rigorous academic curricula through three interdistrict magnet schools that enroll over 1,600 students, and five special education schools that enroll over 600 students. ACES acknowledges and honors the fundamental value and dignity of all of our stakeholders. We pledge to create and maintain an environment that respects diverse traditions, heritages, cultures and experiences. Given that ACES exists for the purpose of addressing issues of academic achievement stemming from racial, ethnic and economic isolation and educating students whose disabilities pose challenges that exceed the capacity of local districts, we are committed to idea that our staff should be reflective of the students and families that we serve.
