WMS implements a highly structured behavior intervention known as PASS for students with behavioral issues. PASS is built on the belief that children with emotional and behavioral issues benefit academically from participation in the general curriculum and behaviorally from educational experiences with nonhandicapped peers.
Developed by a behavior specialist and a licensed psychologist with more than 40 years of collective educational experience, PASS helps school staff serve students with serious emotional disturbances in the general education setting, using individualized programming that incorporates best practices. Programming combines targeted, intensive instruction with behavior monitoring and coaching support for the student and the teacher. The program aims to assist the student in developing self-management skills and relies on data to drive decisions regarding student programming.
