About Public Consulting Group
Public Consulting Group (PCG) is a leading public sector management consulting and operations improvement firm that partners with health, education, and human services agencies to improve lives. For over 35 years, we have helped schools, school districts, and state education agencies/ministries to identify and implement promising pathways to improve programs and processes, optimize financial resources, and promote student success.
Our behavioral threat assessment and management (BTAM) solution manages threats to others and threats to self. It is integrated within our EDPlan™ case management platform that is used by over 3,600 school districts across the U.S. to securely manage supports to students with individual needs.
Identifying Risks Before They Become Threats
Locked doors and metal detectors provide students with a last layer of security at a time when they need it the most. While hardening schools is an important component of school safety, it is not enough.
The U.S. Secret Service recommends that districts implement systems and processes that identify symptoms of threats and manage them before they manifest themselves as actual threats. A system needs to:
- Support the identification and the application of appropriate interventions to help at-risk students
- Enable a multi-disciplinary team to effectively collaborate on student supports
- Surface trends and enables reporting to authorities
- Offer reassurance that potential threats to your school community's safety are identified and reported early
Prevention is what we're here for.
