In response to HB2344: Threat Assessment Teams, which requires each public School Board to establish threat assessment teams similar to those required for Virginia's public institutions of higher education, the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) is pleased to announce a series of one-day threat assessment trainings across the state. The goal of the trainings is to provide guidance and training to schools and divisions without threat assessment teams and processes in place as well as those who have teams and protocols in place but have additional staff members who need to be trained. While many school divisions have voluntarily implemented threat assessment protocols HB 2344 now mandates public school divisions to establish a threat assessment team(s) and collect and report threat assessment data.
In support of this legislation, the Virginia Center for School Safety will provide model policies and protocols for threat assessment. These documents are available electronically at the VCSCS Website and training will be provided at one day threat assessment trainings across the state.
Topics to be addressed
These one day trainings are designed to provide participants with course material and supplemental resources to be able to conduct threat assessments in a K-12 threat assessment setting. Participants will receive the course PowerPoint presentation, as well as newly developed model policies and protocols. Teams who have used the UVA Model or other similar models would find the material useful and adaptable.
Topics to be covered include:
This training is being offered to K-12 threat assessment team members.
One day (7 hours)
Meals and lodging, if applicable, will be the responsibility of the participant.
There is no cost to the participant to attend this course.
