Student Threat Assessment Solution

Our consulting approach and tools incorporate the threat assessment models established by the United States Secret Service and the State of Virginia to implement and improve the K-12 threat assessment process.

“The threat assessment module provides a workflow format that allows teams to work together, gather and review information, draw conclusions, and document the process more effectively and efficiently. Administrators are able to review the same information that schools are looking at in “real time” and process cases collaboratively with them even off-site.”

- Dr. Dolores Robison, Supervisor of PWCS Student Threat Assessment Office
