Research and best practice suggest that meaningful discussions about education require those involved to speak a common language, albeit in different dialects. In appreciation of this precept, Education and Community Outreach offers contextually grounded programming for parents and caregivers under the auspices of Parent and Caregiver Education (PACE). Programming is delivered in English and Spanish without charge to schools, districts, and community-based organizations.

PACE workshops are custom designed to attend to audiences' unique needs in terms of content and delivery (face-to-face, blended/hybrid, and completely online). Each session is about an hour in duration and can be differentiated by age level (pre-kindergarten, elementary, secondary, and postsecondary) or tailored to meet the needs of multiage groups.

Workshops are augmented by short-form videos available for download from the Education Channel at University of California Television (UCTV) and companion guides that may be found at the University of California Professional Development Institute (UCPDI). These resources are also publicly available without cost.

PACE sessions include the following:
