P.A.S.S. Program (Portable Assisted Study Sequence) Summer Report, 1981.
Foshee, Jane E.
The 1981 summer Portable Assisted Study Sequence (PASS) Program, designed to provide self-directed learning packages whereby high school migrant students throughout California can receive credits toward graduation requirements, provided instructional materials to 2,306 students. Student transcripts were sent to 159 California high schools. Overall, new enrollment forms and distribution procedures which were initiated were well received. Major projects offering migrant students opportunities on college campuses were the MENTE Project located in Los Angeles, Stockton, and Turlock and the YO PUEDO Project located in San Luis Obispo. Most projects combined work experience opportunities with an academic course through PASS. Those projects with adequate lead time to process enrollments were satisfied with the material distribution turn-around-time of 3-5 days once enrollment information was received. Observations and discussions with site staff suggested several curriculum modifications, e.g., developing teacher guides with each course, including review tests with each instructional unit for use prior to final unit examininations, distributing answer keys for the learning activity packets. Tabular data pertain to the 1981 summer program credits, comparisons of student credit for the 1978-1981 summer programs, course enrollment and credit comparisons, and credits by school site in each region.
