A Core Element of Your MTSS Framework

While the role of SEL in an MTSS framework looks different in every Kentucky district, there are core elements that should be in place. At the center of a practical MTSS framework is universal SEL screening data to guide all decision-making.

Focused on Attendance

PASS measures student attitude toward attendance, helping predict attendance issues impacting yearly funding via the Superintendent’s Annual Attendance Report (SAAR).

Increasing Positive Behaviors

PASS is a strength-based assessment that measures core competencies that influence students’ development of knowledge, skills, and attitudes before negative behaviors emerge.

PASS Proactively Measures Student Connectedness at School

The Center for Disease Control recently linked student connectedness to school as a critical proactive factor in reducing the likelihood of poor mental health in students. A proactive approach to identifying and addressing connectedness supports positive feelings about school and attendance, which can reduce the use of House Bill 44. PASS allows districts to measure and identify student connectedness to the school setting by providing:


  • Research-backed psychometric measure
  • Administered digitally in just 15 minutes
  • Results immediately available
  • Tailored and standardized for K 12
  • Offered in 26 languages

PASS helps KY schools proactively measure and identify internalized and externalized barriers to learning that impact overall student wellbeing and academics, behavior, and attendance.
