Pass Program


Promoting Achievement and Student Success (PASS)

San Diego County of EducationThe PASS Program is a school-based gang prevention/intervention mentoring program managed by San Diego County Office of Education Student Support Services Department. Trained staff is placed at the school site where they provide consistent services for targeted at-risk students, providing individual and group mentoring, discussions, tutoring, grades and attendance reviews, community service projects, guest speakers, and field trips.  Students are mentored to become positive leaders in their school and community. PASS is also implemented at Pauma and Valley Center Middle Schools.


Hello! My name is Sarah Plancarte, I am the PASS AmeriCorps Program Mentor at Oak Glen High School for the 2017-2018 school year. I will be implementing and maintaining the San Diego County Office of Education and PASS (Promoting Achievement and Student Success) AmeriCorps Program; a mentoring/tutoring and gang and violence prevention model for students. I was raised in Washington State and moved to San Diego in 2008 to finish high school. I graduated from UC Merced in 2014 with a B.A. in Political Science and a double minor in Sociology and Public Health. Last year I served as an AmeriCorps VIP Fellow at Voices for Children in San Diego. In the near future, I hope to obtain my MSW and potentially attend law school.

AmeriCorps provides opportunities for Americans to make a yearlong or more commitment to service. AmeriCorps programs range from teaching to disaster relief.  The PASS AmeriCorps Program is aimed at promoting student achievement through mentoring and tutoring. The PASS Program will provide opportunities for service learning, leadership development, and parent outreach.  

I am so excited to become a part of the Raven family and am looking forward to serving the students at Oak Glen.  I can be contacted at Oak Glen High School and also by phone: (760) 751-0455 or email:>
