Behavior Threat Assessment and Management
When schools and law enforcement receive information about a student(s) engaging in threatening or other concerning behavior, they should thoroughly evaluate and corroborate that information and then develop a plan for managing any potential risks. Multidisciplinary behavior threat assessment and management teams are well positioned to ensure information is shared across the various components of the school community that may have had contact with the student(s) exhibiting concerning behavior. Assessing all available information and developing a joint plan of action is essential to successfully intervening with individuals who may pose a risk of violence or other harmful outcomes.
