PASL

  • Welcome to PASL!

    Personalization for academic and social learning (PASL) represents a systemic, school-wide approach to meeting the academic and socio-emotional needs of high school students.  PASL refers to the ways in which Miramar High School actively encourages students to develop a sense of belonging to the school as a whole, as well as meaningful, positive connections with adults and other students.

    What is PASL?

    PASL is a research-based strategy to increase student connectivity to the educational environment, through building relationships to reach those students who might otherwise fall through between the cracks.  

    The Miramar High initiative develops and expands Personalization for Academic and Social Emotional Learning (PASL), a systemic school-based intervention in which administrators, guidance counselors, and teachers intentionally and deliberately attend to students’ academic, social emotional, and behavioral needs.  Want to learn more?  View this document.

    The PASL Mission:

    To personalize the learning experience for every student in order to meet their individual needs, not only to put a diploma in their hands, but to ensure they are college and career ready.

    Design:  

    Intentional points of contact by teachers utilizing specific strategies developed by a Broward County Schools District Innovation Design Team who worked with researchers from Vanderbilt University, Florida State University and the Education Development Center (EDC).
