School Threat Assessment Workshop

School threat assessment is recognized as a best practice for preventing school shootings. This one-day workshop on school threat assessment presented a step-by-step process for addressing threatening and other potentially dangerous behavior in school or that could impact a school. The workshop taught participants how to respond to threatening behavior and other disturbing behavior, gather additional information, make an assessment, and take preventive steps if necessary.

The Texas School Safety Center hosted six School Threat Assessment Workshops from March through April 2019 to assist school personnel, school security professionals, law enforcement professionals, mental health professionals, and others who may be tasked with addressing threatening behavior in school.
