    PASS launched in spring 2017, and since has celebrated five graduating classes. The first two cohorts were held at Scott Carpenter Middle SchoolShaw Heights Middle School, Ranum Middle School, Westminster High School, and at Hodgkins Elementary School. The PASS program will be launched at Harris Park Elementary in the autumn of 2019 - the second elementary school parent cohort to learn this important information so early in their children's education. The classes are offered in both English and Spanish, and all WPS families are invited to attend. The program will be held at a different school every semester, with the goal of bringing this valuable information to every school community across the district over the next six years.
