Significant gains in school improvement can only occur when the academic, as well as behavioral and social-emotional needs of each child, are addressed within a systematic, coordinated, and tiered system of supports. The Behavior and Social-Emotional Supports Consortium (BaSES) builds capacity through professional development, online resources, and on-site technical assistance and coaching through Project STAY, in addition to regional networking for administrators and school staff to collaborate with community mental health providers.
BaSES align with the Kansas Vision for Education through its foundational structures, focusing on a tiered framework of supports, developing communication and necessary skills through evidence-based practices and data-driven processes.
BaSES strive to improve relationships among students, parents, school staff and community mental health providers to create interconnected systems of care. Thus, the Kansas Mental Health Framework is a cornerstone of the BaSES Consortium.
BaSES professional development encompasses a tiered framework of supports, offering flexibility to target the unique needs of each Kansas school community.
BaSES professional development is designed to create sustainability and collaborative communities employing best practices. This consortium of learners and leaders will transform how Kansas educators respond to student behaviors. BaSES offer an array of professional development in a variety of formats including on-site, regional, online and video conferencing. We also offer individualized support to IEP teams as needed when student crisis situations arise.
