Threat Assessment for SchoolsNeedham Risk Management is capable of providing an array of Threat Assessment services to New York State School Districts.

Threat Assessment is a systematic process designed to identify students who are struggling or present a concern to the school community.  Threat assessment presents a fact-based, community-first approach to problem solving and aims to help potential offenders overcome the underlying sources of their problems before they commit an act of violence.  Needham Risk Management has the ability to provide education, training to counselors and administrators, forms to assist in the standardization of programs, and procedures to schools who require assistance.

Needham Risk Management has developed a free online training module on Creating and Maintaining a Safe and Healthy Classroom for school classroom personnel. This training covers topics such as fire safety, security, indoor environment and health, that, in our opinion, can be important subjects for classroom personnel.
