Training Opportunities

The Office of School Safety is dedicated to providing training that helps schools deter, prevent, mitigate, and respond to school violence. Our training initiatives are shown below.

 

Digital Threat Assessment training

 

Digital Threat Assessment training will give attendees a stronger understanding of the current social media world, provide tools to proactively identify student safety concerns, and provide strategies for dealing with the new digital playground.  After attending the training, the student will have a thorough understanding of current social media platforms; the data collection process; establishing social media baselines for your school, including geolocational searches; and crisis management such as threats, lockdowns, and event preparation, including anonymous threats and obtaining exigent information. More information is available here.

 

Please note that while the Digital Threat Assessment Training is an additional training presented by the Office of School Safety, it does not satisfy the Round 2 grant training requirement. The Round 2 grant requires attendance to the DOJ’s “School Violence Threat Assessment Team Training” found below.

School Violence Threat Assessment Team training

 

The School Violence Threat Assessment Team course is for school administrators, counselors, security personnel and SRO/ERO's. This course will explain who should be part of the threat assessment team, the intent behind threat assessment tools such as the Violence Risk Assessment, how to assess the risk level associated with a threat, and how to determine the appropriate response to a specific threat. Attendees will complete table top exercises and evaluate their own policies. Attendees are encouraged to bring the threat assessment tool used in their school district and their school district's policy regarding threats of violence to the training. This is an eight hour course delivered by school administrators and law enforcement officers. Attendance is restricted to school employees and law enforcement officers.
