Ace Parsi is the personalized learning partnership manager at the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD), an Understood founding partner. He works to ensure that students with disabilities fully benefit from initiatives aiming to personalize learning for all students.
Prior to joining NCLD, Parsi was the deeper learning project director at the National Association of State Boards of Education. In that role, he worked nationally with state boards of education on student assessments, school accountability, high school graduation requirements and other education issues. During his career, Parsi has held a number of policy, research and school-based positions at the Alliance for Excellent Education, the National Service-Learning Partnership, Policy Analysis for California Education and Fair Oaks Community School in Redwood City, California.
Paris and his family immigrated to the United States when he was 8 years old. As a child, he was an English language learner and received free and reduced-price lunch. These experiences led him to a passion for using education policy to help create equity for students. Parsi holds a master of public policy degree from the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley.
