Digital Threat Assessment Toolkit
The Basics

1.0 What is Digital Threat Assessment?

Digital Threat Assessment (DTA) was developed to address the evolving technology challenges that currently face our schools. These challenges have entered the educational domain with force and overwhelmed school district staff throughout the world. This toolkit will give you an overview of the current social media landscape as well as tools to be able to proactively identify safety concerns. Most aspects of school safety and threats to schools now involve a social media or other online component, and it is important to be prepared so there isn’t an overreaction or underreaction in response. The ultimate goal of threat assessment is to prevent unwanted outcomes from occurring.
