Welcome to Panhandle Area Educational Consortium
Panhandle Area Educational Consortium was established over 50 years ago to serve the students and communities in Northwest Florida. PAEC is one of three legislatively created Educational Consortium in Florida. We are proudly led by our members, and we work to meet the unique needs of our small, rural school districts by providing a mix of high-quality services, vigorous advocacy, and forward-looking leadership. PAEC facilitates district collaboration, fosters shared services, and develops talent at every level of our member districts. We serve 14-member districts, representing over 52,000 students, as well as many other non-member districts that purchase services. PAEC proudly serves the school districts of Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Liberty, Madison, Taylor, Wakulla, Walton, and Washington Counties, and the FAMU-Developmental Research School.
Our Mission is to provide a continuum of services that elevate student achievement throughout all consortium school districts
