A 1983-84 survey of migrant directors was conducted to provide information regarding the PASS (Portable Assisted Study Sequence) Program and to solicit recommendations regarding the role of the program in the secondary education of migrant students. Survey questionnaires were received from migrant programs in California, Arizona, Oregon, Arkansas, New York, Washington, and Wisconsin. Information collected concerned program management, eligibility requirements, number of students served, type of credit available, and curriculum. Based on the survey, five recommendations were made: (1) PASS should remain an option as supplemental curriculum solely reserved for Chapter 1 eligible students; (2) copyriglts of PASS curriculum materials should be obtained; (3) the program should be shared with major sending and receiving states to facilitate continued study and credit accrual when students leave the sending state; (4) PASS should be included in the Migrant Student Record Transfer System training process in the states involved; and (5) curriculum should continue to be expanded, updated, and revised to meet the needs of migrant secondary students.
