January 29, 2013, the Polk Association of Chamber Executives (PACE) in conjunction with Polk County's local Chambers of Commerce held a county-wide event at Legoland Florida. There the Polk County School District announced its partnership with Ford and was designated a Ford Next Generation Learning Community.
Hundreds of community members were on hand to learn how Ford NGL and Polk Academies are working together to build a new, exciting educational model for Polk County.
