The Bureau of Exceptional Education and Student Services Curriculum Improvement Project gave away the remaining stock of Parallel Alternative Strategies for Students (PASS) volumes free of charge to Florida educators on a first come first served basis to use as supplemental teaching aides because they were not aligned with the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.
To ensure continued access to these proven learning aids during the transition, we have made the PASS volumes available for free download. The materials offered do not align with the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards, unless noted. The Curriculum Improvement Project is working to align all the guides, beginning with Algebra I and Civics.
What is PASS?
Parallel Alternative Strategies for Students (PASS) volumes are unique, supplemental materials written to help students with various learning needs achieve success in the classroom. The student volumes are presented in an easy-to-understand format for students seeking a standard diploma. The information is written by the Curriculum Improvement Project team in a manner that offers more understanding in less time. The PASS materials provide resources for teaching courses without changing essential content. The teacher guides give exciting teacher suggestions to stimulate student interest with thought-provoking activities. These inexpensive, ready-to-use resources may be reproduced or used as a workbook.
