Faculty and Staff
Superintendent, Metro Schools
Meka Pace serves as the Executive Director of Metro Schools. Mrs. Pace was part of Metro’s founding group of teachers for the inaugural 2006-2007 school year. First, she worked as the school’s intervention coordinator. She also served as dean of students and assistant principal. Mrs Pace began Metro Middle school in 2013 after seeing a need for a more rigorous , personalized educational experience for middle level learners in Central Ohio. During the 2015-16 school year, a second high school on the campus of Franklin Univeristy was opened to provide students with stackable credentials and college access. Pace seeks to ensure personalized, innovative educational opportunities for students, while leading teachers as they focus on rigorous, equitable education for all students.
Mrs. Pace frequently consults with educators in Ohio, and around the country. Her work in Ohio, Texas, and North Carolina includes coaching school teams to not only integrate Common Core state standards into the STEM and Early College setting, but also to coach other educators to step into the same role of trainer. Prior to working at Metro, she worked in Columbus City Schools, where she helped create successful, high-achieving inclusion models in both an elementary and a middle school through designing appropriate interventions for students with special needs. She has led the development of multi-age student groupings, block scheduling, standards-based teaching, and creative partnership opportunities in multiple educational contexts.
Mrs. Pace earned her bachelor’s of science in education from Bowling Green State University and her master’s degree in educational administration from Capella University. Mrs. Pace and her husband, Will, have three wonderful sons – two of whom attend Metro themselves.
