Parallel Alternative Strategies for Students (PASS)

PASS volumes are unique supplemental materials written to help students with various learning needs achieve success. The student volumes are designed for students seeking a standard diploma and provide course content in a format that is easy to understand.

Corresponding teacher materials provide resources for teaching courses without changing essential content. Although not aligned with Florida Standards, PASS materials are an excellent resource and offer suggestions to stimulate student interest through thought-provoking activities.
