Threat Assessment & Intervention Training

Trains teams to review, assess, and develop an intervention plan for identified at-risk individuals

What is It?

The Threat Assessment & Intervention Training Program establishes and trains multidisciplinary teams to review and assess the level of risk a student may be to themselves, others, or a critical asset and develop an intervention plan to address the identified at-risk individual’s underlying issues and concerns.

This program is based on one of the nation’s leading programs, the Salem-Keizer Student Threat Assessment System, and is being offered in partnership with the Public Consultant Group.

Why Schools and Districts Choose Threat Assessment & Interventions

1. The only guided case management model that provides violence, suicide, sexual, and fire-setting assessments

2. This model is based and derived from several significant research sets that reported:

  • Fewer instances of bullying
  • Perceptions of a more positive and supportive school climate
  • Greater willingness to seek help
  • Fewer long-term suspensions, expulsions, and arrests
  • Students of color and with disabilities are less likely to be disproportionately impacted

3. Threat assessment teams are unanimously recommended by school safety experts

  • A 2002 FBI report states “the most valuable prevention strategy identified was the threat assessment and management team”
  • A 2018 Department of Homeland Security report stated that “preventing violence by detecting and addressing these red flags [threats] is more effective than any physical security measure”
  • The 2018 Federal Commission on School Safety report recommended that schools implement school threat assessment programs
  • The US Departments of Education and Justice, NAAG, IACLEA, NASPA, MHEC recommend threat assessment systems

4. Meets federal, state, and district best practices and policies

5. The use of threat assessment models has shown they can reduce the risk through protective actions for possible targets and appropriate interventions that address a perpetrator’s underlying issues

6. Threat assessment helps foster a safe, supportive, and effective school environment while promoting trust between students, administrators, and educators

7. Conforms to the highest levels of security and privacy

  • Adheres to the FERPA, HIPAA, and uses RBAC methodology
  • SOC2 Certified program making it one of the highest security ratings for protecting data
  • Independent audit to validate safety & business practices
