School shootings have been prevented when schools have learned about threatening behavior and moved quickly to gather information, assess the situation, and intervene where necessary. Training school personnel on how to assess and respond to threatening behavior gives them the tools necessary to address threatening situations and help prevent harm before it can occur.
We train school, law enforcement, and mental health professionals how to identify, investigate, assess, and intervene in cases of threats and other alarming behavior. We also teach school and district personnel how to set up and operate their own school threat assessment teams. Through training, consultation, and support services, we help schools take a more proactive and preventive stance to protect their students, faculty, staff, and visitors from harm. Several SIGMA experts co-authored the federal school threat assessment model, which is considered current best practice and referenced in the most recent federal guides on emergency planning for K-12 schools.
