P.A.S.S. Program (Portable Assisted Study Sequence).
Foshee, Jane E.
Motivated migrant students can accumulate some credits necessary for high school graduation via the Portable Assisted Study Sequence (PASS) Program of correspondence courses. Migrant students enrolled in any high school district in California may also enroll in a PASS course to make up credit deficiencies in reading, English, speech, general math, algebra, U.S. history, Mexican American history, American government, general science, outdoor study, and work experience. Students may continue to work through Parlier and accumulate credits as they migrate throughout the state. The adapted curriculum follows the approved and accredited course of study. Courses are organized into units; partial credit is given for unit completion. Some courses are bilingual (Spanish and English) and others have bilingual instructions to aid the limited English speaking student. Certified counselors or teachers serving as contact persons for the program enroll students in PASS by completing and submitting a Student Learning Plan, a PASS Enrollment Form for a selected course, and Migrant Student Record Transfer System forms (copies included). Course materials are sent to the student via the contact person who administers the course locally. (SB)
