Wisconsin School Threat Assessment and Management Protocol

The School Threat Assessment and Management Protocol is an early intervention tool to assist BTAM (Behavioral Threat Assessment and Management) trained staff in determining appropriate intervention steps when students exhibit concerning behaviors. For upcoming BTAM training courses, see our Training Opportunities page. The BTAM process continuum includes Triage, Inquiry, Assessment, and Case Management. The Wisconsin School Threat Assessment and Management Protocol (WSTAMP) Process Flowchart specifies each step in the process.  The BTAM process is case specific.  Some cases may proceed to the full Assessment process, and others may result in the development of a management plan for a student of concern at the Triage or Inquiry phase.  All cases must be monitored over time.  New information or failure to comply with the case specific management plan may result in plan adjustments or in the initiation of a new Triage/ Inquiry/ Assessment/Case Management process.
