    Introduction

    This toolkit is meant to be utilized as a practical guideline for schools to create their own policies and procedures in assessing threats. Every school and school district is unique and will therefore present with characteristics requiring an individualized approach. Every school should have policies in place to properly manage school threats, identify, assess, and intervene with students who pose a risk, and effectively deal with the aftermath of a violent school act, including the complex trauma and grief that follow. We hope this toolkit serves as a resource to support safer schools in assessing threats.

    We would like to emphasize that violent acts at school are extremely rare and schools continue to remain very safe. However, when a violent act does occur this results in a significant impact on the school and surrounding community leaving far-reaching and long-lasting effects.
