    Parent Academy for Student Success (PASS) is a FREE program that is open to all Westminster Public Schools parents, including Spanish speakers. PASS helps you open the door to opportunity for your children, by giving you the knowledge and skills to help your student be ready for life after high school. Based on a program that has benefitted students and families for more than 30 years, PASS teaches you how to help your child prepare for career and college, beginning as early as elementary school!

    PASS launched in spring 2017, and since has celebrated three graduating classes. The first two cohorts were held at Scott Carpenter Middle School and Shaw Heights Middle School, followed by the most recent at Westminster High School. The PASS program comes to Ranum Middle School in fall 2018, and then Hodgkins Elementary will launch the first elementary school cohort in the spring of 2019. Classes are offered in both English and Spanish, and all WPS families are invited to attend. The nine-week courses will be held at a different school every semester, with the goal of bringing the program to every school community across the district over the next six years.
