Comprehensive School Threat Assessment Guidelines
June 4, 2019
WKEC Conference Center – Eddyville, KY
Research has shown that students in special education make disproportionately more threats, as well as more severe threats, than peers in general education. As a result, WKEC is pleased to present Dr. Dewey Cornell’s Comprehensive School Threat Assessment Guidelines.
This model provides a 5-step decision tree and triage approach which will enable most threats to be acted upon immediately and resolved quickly. Schools are encouraged to attend this training as a multi-disciplinary team, which may include a School Principal or Assistant Principal, School Resource Officer, School Psychologist, School Counselor, School Social Worker or other team members. One of the key factors in this threat assessment model is to distinguish between transient threats (those threats spoken in anger and frustration and can be resolved easily) and substantive threats (those threats which include serious intent and detailed plans). Thus, a threat assessment plan will delineate the difference between a student MAKING a threat versus the student who POSES a threat.
**Although it is recommended that each person on the school or district Threat Assessment team, have a copy of Comprehensive School Threat Assessment Guidelines manual, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that each team have at least one manual.
