The Portable Assisted Study Sequence (PASS) is a program of courses which allows migrant students to make up credit deficiencies and continue to accumulate credits as they migrate to other schools. MINI PASS is an extension of PASS for middle school students (MINI is not an abbreviation). This report contains nationwide PASS and MINI PASS usage results, as well as narrative summaries and usage reports for each of the following states: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New York, Oregon, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin. Usage information includes: (1) number of students enrolled; (2) migrant status (interstate, intrastate, or farmer); (3) ethnic background; (4) grade placement; (5) gender; (6) student age; (7) number of courses enrolled; (8) number of units completed; and (9) number of semester credits granted. The results reveal the success of the program in meeting the needs of secondary migrant students throughout the nation. A comparison of data from previous years demonstrates a continuing increase in the number of students served, coupled with increasing program effectiveness in accomplishing its goals and objectives. The document contains numerous data tables and figures. (KS)
