Online School-based Threat Assessment Training for Community Experts

Online School-based Threat Assessment Training for Community Experts

Level Two

Administered by NWESD


  • Erin Wood


The purpose of a threat assessment is to prevent targeted violence. The appraisal of risk in a school setting focuses on action, communication, and circumstances that may suggest an individual intends to mount an attack and is engaged in planning or preparing for that event. The threat assessment process is centered upon an analysis of the facts and evidence of behavior in a given situation, and sometimes a clear analysis requires the support and perspective of community experts beyond the walls of the school building. 

This 2-hour Student Threat Assessment (STA) training will cover the essential concepts of the Salem-Keizer Threat Assessment System, and will clarify the roles of local experts who are eager to support the safety and well-being of our schools and community. 

This training will review the following:

  • Youth Risk Factors
  • Supportive Research and Best Practice Recommendations
  • Application of STA concepts 
  • Clarification of community partners’ roles and responsibilities in STA
  • Case Study and Exercises Demonstrating Level 2 STA Process

Event Notes

Target Audience: School administrators, counselors, school psychologists, school-based mental health, safety and security staff, IEP case managers, district leadership, teachers, coaches, health staff, and student support staff.

Note: School district employees who have been trained in Level 1 STA and who are interested in more training should register for “Threat Assessment Training: Beyond Level 1.”
