PASS (Part-Time Alternative Self-Paced School)

PASS is an Alternative Education high school after hours program for students who want a self-paced, individualized approach to their education. Courses are offered in modules (self-paced resources) broken up into smaller units to be completed independently (asynchronously) with the help of a certified teacher. 

The teacher and the student determine appropriate goals and can set personalized schedules.  

The program currently operates from four ECSD locations and is available from September to June, every Monday and Wednesday from 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm. 

*** All assessments are in person.


Registration is now open for 2021/2022. Registration closes March 23, 2022.

Registration (PASS Sem 2) is now open to all ECSD and Non-ECSD students.
