Our Threat Assessment in Schools course provides guidance on a wide spectrum of issues related to the threat-assessment process. We’ll discuss how to develop, operate, and manage a threat-assessment strategy by using the Salem-Keizer System Threat Assessment as a model. This course also delves into additional issues that school districts are having to deal with – domestic violence, teen dating, and stalking.
