Behavioral & Social Emotional Supports (BaSES) Consortium

Mission & Vision

Our mission: To collaboratively build social-emotional capacity within students, families, staff, and schools through a responsive, multidisciplinary approach.

Our vision: To foster connectedness and wellbeing.

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 Behavioral and Social-Emotional Supports (BaSES) consortium builds capacity through regional and onsite professional development, student-based technical assistance through Project STAY, ongoing staff mentoring, and expert-led regional forums.

BaSES aligns 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.
