PASS Training

MFPE PASS (Paraprofessionals Achieving Standards Successfully) Training has been developed by and for Montana paraprofessionals and provides participants with important skills in classroom management as well as proven strategies in reading, writing, and math instruction, taught in a dynamic and fun setting. A nationally developed assessment is built directly into the course, assuring that paraprofessionals who take the course can demonstrate evidence of content mastery to their local districts and the state of Montana. PASS is a two-part structured self-paced online course.

A team of highly trained educators from throughout the state are responsible for teaching the course.

Who Should Attend?

  • Any paraprofessional who wants to gain new skills and capacity for helping students.
  • Any paraprofessional who still needs to be deemed “highly qualified” in accordance with new Title I requirements. (Check with your local school district or union rep if you are unsure if you are affected by these requirements and to assure that PASS is recognized by your district).
