FACE Accomplishments from the 2009-2010 School Year
Tampa, Florida (July 30, 2010) – It’s been one year since Quest Inc. – a leading nonprofit organization serving people with disabilities – began managing the Florida Autism Center of Excellence (FACE), and the school has since made many strides.
FACE is a Hillsborough County public charter school specializing in educational programs for children ages 3 to 22 with moderate to severe autism. Prior to the agreement, FACE was set to close before the start of the 2009-2010 school year, but when Quest assumed management on July 1, 2009, the school was able to remain open and continue operating.
FACE is one of the few public schools in the state that focuses solely on children on the autism spectrum – a population that is on the rise, as an estimated one in every 91 U.S. children are now diagnosed with autism.
