Operationalizing School Behavioral Threat Assessment Technical Assistance

Virtual Technical Assistance

The Texas School Safety Center is offering technical assistance sessions on Operationalizing School Behavioral Threat Assessment.

Participating districts must:

  1. Have a School Behavioral Threat Assessment (SBTA) team(s).
  2. Conduct threat assessments at campuses.

The Operationalizing School Behavioral Threat Assessment technical assistance sessions will include:

  • Answers to questions related to the implementation of SBTA processes and individual district needs.
  • An action plan based on the outcomes of the technical assistance session. The action plan, created by TxSSC, will support threat assessment teams in improving their threat assessment programming. TxSSC will issue action plans to districts five days after the technical assistance session.

Each virtual session will run 2 hours and can serve up to 10 team members per district. One district will be selected per session.

Only the district representative responsible for submitting your district’s School Behavioral Threat Assessment data to the Texas Education Agency will be able to submit a training request.

In your training registration request, you will be asked to select three training dates. We cannot guarantee which training date you will be assigned. Please ensure that you secure the dates you selected in your calendar, as we will be unable to adjust the training dates you have selected.

The district representative will be required to complete an Operationalizing School Behavioral Threat Assessment Technical Assistance Questionnaire you may download below.

Operationalizing School Behavioral Threat Assessment Technical Assistance Questionnaire:

OSBTA Technical Assistance Questionnaire

We have included guiding questions to help you structure your responses. The more information we receive, the better prepared we will be able to collaborate. The goal of this questionnaire is to best understand how your district and campuses are currently implementing SBTA processes. This will allow us to focus our meeting on meaningful and impactful topics.

Also, if you do not provide adequate information in your district’s Operationalizing School Behavioral Threat Assessment Technical Assistance Questionnaire, we will not be able to secure a training date for your district.

Please Note: This training is open to public ISDs and open-enrollment charter schools.

Not eligible for TCOLE training credit.

Special Accommodations:

Please submit all special accommodations request(s) via email to txssc_opsbta@txstate.edu no later than two weeks prior to the training.
