Behavioral Threat Assessment Annex

This annex focuses on the courses of action for operation of a behavioral threat assessment team. A behavioral threat assessment team analyzes communication and behaviors to determine the extent to which a student, staff member, or other person may pose a threat. The purpose of the behavioral threat assessment is to identify students, staff, or other persons who may pose a threat before a threat develops into an incident. The team may also refer any identified persons to services, if appropriate.

The planning team should consider the following when developing its goals, objectives, and courses of action:

  • Which representatives should participate on the behavioral threat assessment team
  • How the team will help to ensure that information complies with applicable privacy, civil rights, and other applicable laws
