Positive Alternative to School Suspension

The Alternative to Suspension Classroom or PASS (Positive Alternative to School Suspension) program is a short-term, on-site intervention classroom initiative designed to address the unique needs of students who have committed a school level behavioral infraction. The classroom components will help students develop more effective coping skills, character development principles, pro-social behaviors, while remaining on track with academics in the classroom.
PASS is designed as an enhancement to Orange County Public Schools' Student Code of Conduct. Only administrators, with official referral documentation, may place a student in PASS on a period by period basis or for an amount of days not to exceed 10 days for any single placement. This program will allow schools and administrators to effectively deal with Code of Conduct violations that do not require a student be removed from the school setting.
