PASS: Partners Assuring School Success
The PASS program is based on the Task-Centered Case Management Model (TCCM) and is a research based intervention for students who have demonstrated some type of barrier to academic achievement.
Partners Assuring School Success (PASS), based on the Task-Centered Case Management Model (TCCM), is a research based intervention implemented by a Case Manager. The Case Manager provides a screening for each referral to ascertain the appropriateness of the referral. Once an eligible youth and family are admitted into the program, the Case Manager performs an assessment to identify barriers to academic achievement; a Student Success Team is developed; and TCCM interventions begin. In addition to Team Meetings, interventions can include student meetings, family meetings, classroom observations, and consultation with teachers and school personnel.
Liberty Resources Family Services, Inc. (LRFS) has partnered with the Flour Bluff Independent School District (FBISD) to offer services to District youth determined to be at risk due to truancy and other behaviors negatively impacting school success. LRFS was awarded a grant from the Governor’s Office and began accepting referrals to the PASS Program in November 2017.
PASS services are centered on three key phases of TCCM:
- Preadmission: Referral process
- Assessment: Understanding the student, the family, and the systems affecting them
- Intervention: Implementing the TCCM
- Discharge: Planning and follow up contacts
