Ensuring the safety of Ohio’s schools encompasses multiple components, including physical security, emergency management and violence prevention in the form of a threat assessment process. This process begins with a comprehensive targeted violence prevention plan, which involves forming a multidisciplinary threat assessment team, establishing central reporting mechanisms, identifying behaviors of concern, defining the threshold for law enforcement intervention, identifying risk management strategies, promoting safe school climates and providing training to stakeholders. Such a plan can also help schools mitigate threats from students, employees, parents or others.
These basic instructions and recommendations serve as the starting point for implementation, a process that will need to be customized to the specific needs of your school and the larger community.
