School Districts must be prepared to conduct prompt, thorough and uniform investigations of all complaints, accidents, and allegations of inappropriate, unprofessional or criminal behavior that is observed or alleged.
Who should attend? Board Members, Administrators, Principals and/or Security Personnel.
It is imperative that each school in your district perform investigations in a uniform manner following a district policy. Lawsuits often focus on the continuity and quality of employer investigations and the skills of those who conduct them.
This course explains the fundamentals of planning and conducting internal investigations. It provides essential training for supervisors assigned to conduct or assist with an investigation of a student or employee complaint, accident or allegation of law or policy violation.
When handled properly, the investigation can help your organization to prevent or reduce financial losses, employee morale problems and negative publicity. It can also limit the organization's exposure to costly litigation.
The early recognition that a potential crisis is imminent can lead to effective action and prevent or at least reduce its impact. Every day teachers, classroom aides, and administrators are called upon to intervene in crises which may become dangerous if not handled properly.
Crises are often unexpected events. A crisis event can be brought on by a student, parent or other family member, staff member or intruder. Unfortunately, it is often our students that are the ones in crisis and threatening violence to other students or school staff. Homicides by adolescents increased 61 percent between 1979 and 1989, and an estimated quarter million students carry guns to school daily (American Psychological Association 1993).
These volatile situations often turn catastrophic before for the “trained crisis team” or police arrive.
When students and staff are in immediate danger and the police or school “Crisis Team” does not have time to respond before the event becomes tragic, the staff member on the front line needs to have skills to assess, contain and diffuse the situation providing the opportunity for a safer outcome.

Threat Vulnerability Risk Assessment (TVRA) is the 1st step in developing an effective facility security program.
A properly conducted TVRA provides a solid defensible foundation from which to develop a physical security program at any site, facility or location. TVRA identifies the security risks an organization faces and ensures that the physical security program is designed to combat those risks. The TVRA findings provide a roadmap that can be used to refine or develop a properly integrated physical security program.
Effective security starts with clear understanding of your vulnerabilities. We can help you gauge your strengths and weaknesses in a wide variety of scenarios.
Assess the existing security protection in terms of countering the identified security risks.
Evaluate identified threats and establish the level of risk, the likelihood of an adverse event and its resulting impact.
Provide gap analysis to isolate areas where your security program does not meet industry best practices.
Recommend risk control strategies to mitigate identified security risks to an acceptable level at an acceptable cost.
