    About PASS

    The crux of the PASS project is an after-school tutorial program which is operated by certified district teachers in six homeless shelters. Students are tutored in small groups and provided individual learning experiences through computer-assisted integrated learning systems.

    Projects serve homeless students and families in the following shelters located within the Richland One area:


    • Children's Garden
    • Family Shelter
    • Palmetto Place
    • Sistercare
    • St. Lawrence Place
    • Hannah House


    PASS works to eliminate or reduce barriers to school enrollment and learning success for children experiencing homelessness. With a strong commitment to our students and families, we strive to aggressively address their needs through innovative programming.
