Creating a Targeted Violence Prevention Plan

Updated: Feb 15, 2021

As we approach the start of the 2020/2021 school year it is important to have our minds on safety and security. The obvious threat at the moment is Covid-19 and the direct impact it will have on the students and school staff. However, with a long period of time from school there will be a heighten risk of targeted violence at schools. Threats increase exponentially after a long break away from the classroom.

One way to address the potential risk is to create a Targeted Violence Prevention Plan. This approach provides the framework for schools to identify, assess and manage students who pose a risk of violence or other harmful behavior.

The eight steps to creating a Targeted Violence Prevention Plan;

Step 1 – Establish a multidisciplinary threat assessment team

Step 2 - Define concerning behaviors

Step 3 - Establish and provide training on a central reporting system

Step 4 – Determine the threshold for law enforcement intervention

Step 5 – Establish threat assessment procedures

Step 6 – Develop risk management options

Step 7 – Create and promote a safe school climate

Step 8 – Provide training for all stakeholders
