PASS, or Parents Advocating Student Success, Inc. is a private, not-for-profit organization that is autonomous from the Verona Area School District (VASD).

The primary role of PASS is to hold Verona Area Core Knowledge Charter School's charter contract with VASD, and to assure contract compliance. Other duties of PASS include seeking funding opportunities for the CKCS Endowment Fund held through Madison Community Foundation and distributing the funds accordingly.

The PASS Board of Directors consists of five volunteer parent members who are elected for 1-year terms in an election held by the Parent Round Table (PRT) each spring. Of the five PASS members, two are the Governing Council (GC) President and Treasurer.  In addition to the Board of Directors parent volunteers serve as PASS Officers heading committee activities.
