How do you predict?


While schools can act to minimize the risk of violence, or the possibility of an accident, we can rarely, if ever, predict when it will happen because of the numerous variables involved. We can only analyze the risk, perform a threat assessment, and maintain a pro-active loss control mentality. Our safety program has been designed to identify and understand risk factors often seen in the form of recurring and escalating accidents or violent actions. We should not attempt to match a situation, student,  parent, or staff member to a predetermined "profile" in any assessment.
