The LPS Threat Assessment protocol is initiated when a student poses a threat, makes a threat, or if there is concern that a student might act out violently. LPS administrators lead a process that includes gathering information, interviewing involved persons, completing a screening tool, communicating with parents and establishing an action plan. Suspension may be used as an immediate intervention during the threat assessment process. The student’s age, background and developmental level are taken into consideration when assessing the level of concern and appropriate interventions. In serious situations, a law enforcement investigation may be initiated at the same time as the school is conducting a Threat Assessment.
