Creating an Effective Threat Assessment Process for K-12 Schools
Here’s how you can create a multi-disciplinary team, as well as an effective threat management process.
One of the most challenging tasks K-12 school administrators must face is dealing effectively with a student exhibiting signs that he or she could act out and possibly hurt themselves or others.
At the 2016 Idaho Prevention and Support Conference held in Sun Valley, Idaho this spring, Campus Safety spoke with Mike Munger of the Boise Independent School District on how districts, particularly those with minimal resources, can put together effective threat assessment teams.
He then discusses the threat assessment process as it often applies to schools. He also covers how to manage a threat after it has been assessed, which often includes providing resources to the student so they can get the help they need.
