Project P.A.S.S. Helps Them Pass.
McDuffie County School District, Thomson, GA.
Project Partnership and Student Success (PASS) provides help to grade 3 high risk mathematics students by forming partnerships with their parents. The school provides practice materials and personnel to teach parents how to use them. Parents provide task-oriented time and individual attention to their child. This program, in a practical way, coordinates the attainment of mathematics objectives, test-taking composure, home practice, computer use, and parental involvement--all without asking classroom teachers to modify or add to their workload. Described is a home visit where a facilitator drops off practice mathematics materials and takes time to explain their use to parents. A model of this home-based partnership could be readily adapted to other grade levels and subject areas. (KR)
