Project Stay (what is it)

Project STAY is a multidisciplinary team, providing direct, hands-on consultation to general and special education students and staff. Our problem-solving model includes functional behavioral assessment, family and school communication, academic curriculum assessment, learning strategies and system analysis for individual students and classrooms. Our goal is to provide technical assistance to teachers and support staff in reducing disruptions in the school, increasing staff skills and enhancing educational outcomes for all students.

Referring a Student: 

North Central Kansas Special Education Cooperative has contracted with Project STAY to provide technical assistance, coaching, and staff development services. One of the services Project STAY provides is to conduct a Functional Behavioral Assessment of students who exhibit challenging behaviors. In order for a student to be referred to Project STAY the following steps need to occur:

  1. Parent(s) or legal guardian need to sign a consent form to allow Project STAY to become involved 
  2. An initial meeting (intake meeting) scheduled with Project STAY staff through NCKSEC staff (Peggy Cox)
  3. Any additional data that has been collected

To schedule a meeting with ProjectSTAY consultants, please contact Peggy Cox at NCKSEC. 

Things that Dr. Ryan Vaughn has shared several times with staff

Another thing that might be helpful is the Trauma Responsive Student Planning Packet. It looks daunting but has a fillable PDF along with definitions of what is being asked for along with a sample FBA/SSP. This would help provide more information when Dr. Vaughn visits with Project Stay. One of the authors worked for Project Stay for 25 years.
