Program Alternative to Student Suspension
Questar III’s Program Alternative to Student Suspension (PASS) provides an alternative to school suspension by focusing on behavioral and social skill development while assisting students with academic skills. Students receive at least 2 hours instruction per day from a certified teacher with the remainder of the day supervised by either a certified teacher or teacher assistant. Parents are invited and encouraged to participate with students and staff in the development of an individual plan to help the student successfully return to school. This program is held at the Rensselaer Educational Center and Columbia-Greene Educational Centers.
