KESA accredits at the district level to create systemic change within and among school buildings across the district. Systems need to redesign and pursue a continuous improvement process at both the district and school levels. The School Redesign Project at the Kansas State Department of Education and KESA work together to create system changes to support the State Board Outcomes.</p>

KESA accredits at the district level to create systemic change within and among school buildings across the district. Systems need to redesign and pursue a continuous improvement process at both the district and school levels. The School Redesign Project at the Kansas State Department of Education and KESA work together to create system changes to support the State Board Outcomes.</p>

Threat Assessment Team Training (Topeka)

<p><img class="alignleft" src="https://kasb.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Pathway-Icon-Title-Safe-Students.jpg" alt="" width="100" height="144" />Efforts to prevent violence and build safe school environments have evolved over the past 20 years. Today&rsquo;s school leaders are faced with an overwhelming number of choices - all hailed as effective solutions to combat a variety of school-based violence issues. Technical strategies such as video surveillance, metal detectors and lockdown/lockout drills are now commonplace.</p> <p>Despite the ever-increasing amount of solutions available, very few have the proof to back up claims. Many modern school safety solutions have yet to be widely tested and used in real-time situations. National data reveal expenditures for school security have dramatically increased and will continue to grow as new technologies hit the market.</p> <p>Even with these increased expenditures, evidence from 20 years of research on school violence events suggests the overall system for preventing school violence can be improved. When evaluating improvements in school security measures, a central question every board member and school leaders should ask is &ldquo;has its effectiveness been proven?&rdquo;</p> <p>To assist our members in answering this important question, KASB is bringing a national leader in school safety to our state for a day-long workshop on threat assessment. Agenda:</p> <ul> <li><strong>Rationale for Threat Assessment </strong><br />Misconceptions about the nature and scope of school violence;&nbsp;Ineffective responses to school violence: Zero tolerance discipline and excessive security measures;&nbsp;Public health approach to prevention using a multi-tiered model: Prevention, not prediction of violence;&nbsp;Case study of a school shooting that illustrates the need for threat assessment</li> <li><strong>How to Conduct a Threat Assessment</strong> <br />FBI and Secret Service/Department of Education principles of threat assessment;&nbsp;Development of the Virginia model, including the decision tree and interview process (will include practice interview);&nbsp;How to identify and resolve transient threats;&nbsp;How to identify and resolve substantive threats;&nbsp;Mental health assessments: When, why, and how</li> <li><strong>Cases Studies Illustrating the Three Pathways to Violence </strong><br />Conflict pathway;&nbsp;Antisocial pathway;&nbsp;Psychotic pathway</li> <li><strong>Research Support for Threat Assessment </strong><br />Brief and non-technical overview of the field tests: controlled studies and large-scale implementation study;&nbsp;Benefits of threat assessment: Low rates of threats being carried out, reductions in school suspension, reductions in racial/ethnic disparities in discipline, improvements in school climate</li> <li><strong>Legal and Practical Issues </strong><br />Confidentiality and the need to warn potential victims: The Tarasoff case, what FERPA permits schools to do;&nbsp;Liability: How threat assessment provides protection</li> <li><strong>Team Exercises to Resolve Transient and Substantive Threats of Violence</strong></li> <li><strong>Next Steps in Implementing Threat Assessment&nbsp;at Your School </strong><br />Free online training;&nbsp;Orientation for students, parents, and staff;&nbsp;Questions and answers on implementation</li> </ul>
