Inspire learning, increase academics
 and help working families!

Project PASS (Partners Assisting Student Success) is an innovative community-based after-school program. PASS primarily serves students who need extra academic support. Participation by these students is determined by district requirements. However, Open Library and enrichment activities are available to all students.

On its main campus, six school buildings participate in Project PASS. Dogwood Elementary houses kindergarten through second grades, Hawthorn Elementary houses third and fourth grades, and Oak Ridge Elementary houses fifth and sixth grades. The middle school includes seventh and eighth grades, and the high school includes ninth through twelfth grades. In separate locations, Osage Beach Elementary and Hurricane Deck Elementary each offer afterschool to kindergarten through fourth-grade students. The Lake Career & Tech Center serves as a site for enrichment classes and adult education.  All sites are open one hour before school Monday-Friday and afterschool hours are Monday-Thursday, 3:00 pm-5:30 pm.

Afterschool Services begins at dismissal time Monday-Thursday with dinner being served and includes a short team-building or recreational time. This informal break between the school day and after school time gives students a chance to regroup, recharge and reconnect with friends and with teachers. Programs end at 5:30 p.m. with transportation provided to the designated drop-off points designated by the district.
Programs will vary from year to year based on the availability of funds, staff, facilities, volunteers, and supplies.  Lottery rules may apply and/or criteria will vary based on activity, grade level, academic content, and other criteria as deemed appropriate.
 Daily Activities
Students in grades K-8 receive homework help gain math and reading skills, and take part in PBL learning activities. Field trips, guest speakers, and other activities occur weekly. 
The before-school program called open library is available to all students, beginning at 7:15 a.m. each weekday. Activities include reading, using computers, strategic thinking exercises, and tutoring by certified teachers and high school A+ students. 

"Before I retired from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, I had a chance to see the project begin and quickly develop into one of the most successful programs in our state. Project PASS has great leadership and support from students, faculty, administrators, parents, the superintendent, and the community."
