What is PASS?


PASS stands for Parent Advocates for Students and Schools. It's a volunteer organization that aims to ensure the needs of military-affiliated school age children are met. Being part of PASS allows for networking with other parents. It encourages building connections between families, the installation and the schools. 


PASS can enhance resilience by educating parents and creating deeper ties to the military and the community. The average military child attends 6-9 different schools/school systems during their K-12 years. It is imperative that parents prepare for future challenges that may arise in their child's education journey.

The goal of the PASS program is to educate military parents and establish networking opportunities to bring about the best educational outcomes for military-connected families.

Workshops offered regularly include: Starting Your Child in School, Roadmap to Your Child's Future, Teaming with School Personnel, School Transitions and Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
