Comprehensive School Threat Assessment Guidelines

Behavioral Threat Assessment (BTA) Solution

BTAs are a proven method of early intervention that can help prevent acts of targeted violence in school environments. This practice is recommended by the FBI, the U.S. Department of Education, and the U.S. Secret Service.

Public Consulting Group’s (PCG’s) BTA 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.

Our Solution

PCG’s solution is adaptable and aligns with your school's BTA methodology and policy. We offer an out-of-the-box configuration that follow state and local guidelines for Comprehensive School Threat Assessment Guidelines (CSTAG) endorsed by Dr. Dewey Cornell, author of CSTAG.

We use an evidence-based, multi-disciplinary team approach to identify, evaluate, assess, and support, students of concern who present a potential threat to themselves or others.

The Comprehensive School Threat Assessment Guidelines (CSTAG) provide a structured approach for schools to identify, assess, and manage potential threats of violence or harm to students, teachers, and staff.

This process involves a team of trained professionals who work together to gather information about the person of concern, including their behavior, history, and potential risk factors. The team then evaluates the information to determine the level of risk and develops an intervention plan to manage the threat.

The guidelines emphasize the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach that includes mental health professionals, law enforcement, school administrators, and other relevant stakeholders. The goal is to prevent violence before it occurs by identifying and addressing warning signs and risk factors.

Overall, the CSTAG provides a proactive and collaborative approach to ensuring the safety and well-being of students, teachers, and staff in school settings.
