The Madison-Champaign Educational Service Center is hosting Threat Assessment Training facilitated by the Sandy Hook Promise organization in conjuction with the Ohio Department of Education.
Audience: Safety Assessment & Intervention is designed for multidisciplinary school-based teams that receive and respond to reported threats of violence in their school buildings. Each member of a team has expertise in administration, safety or mental health. This means every school in the district should send an administrator, as well as a security expert and mental health expert to the training.
The ODE is offering these free, evidence-based school violence prevention trainings to school personnel and students statewide using U.S. Department of Justice grant funding allocated through the STOP School Violence Act.
Ohio’s strategic plan for education, Each Child, Our Future, declares the Department’s commitment that every child will learn in an environment that is physically and emotionally safe. Governor Mike DeWine recently announced a proposal to reduce gun violence and increase mental health prevention and treatments. That proposal includes offering school safety assessment and intervention programs through a partnership of the Ohio Department of Education and Sandy Hook Promise.
Safety Assessment & Intervention (SAI) is a national, evidence-based, violence-prevention training program, one of Sandy Hook’s proven Know the Signs programs. The day-long workshops cover the theory of threat assessment and practical applications for district threat assessment teams.
