STOP School Violence Grant Available Now

STOP School Violence Grants

It’s a new year, and it might just be time for some new school safety strategies. I trust that you had a restful holiday break and are ready to hit the ground running for the second half of the school year.

As you may have heard, the Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice has opened the STOP School Violence Grant Program to new applications. The STOP School Violence Grant Program is designed to fund improvements to school safety and security. Its objective is to increase safety by implementing training and school threat assessments and/or intervention teams to identify school violence risks among students; technological solutions such as anonymous reporting technology that can be implemented as a mobile phone-based app, a hotline, or a website in the applicant’s geographic area to enable students, teachers, faculty, and community members to anonymously identify threats of school violence; or other school safety strategies that assist in preventing violence. The grant application deadline is March 3, 2020.

If you’re interested in funding threat assessment team training and development or all-staff training in school safety, and would like help with your grant language or a price quote for training with Youth Risk Prevention Specialists, please feel free to contact me by phone or email. I’m happy to help!

I wish you the best of luck!

There is one thing you can do

There is one thing you can do
It has happened yet again. Today marks the 18th school shooting this year. Each and every one of them is devastating. As educators, we mourn with the families, students, and school staff members who have suffered. We look at our own schools and workplaces and wonder whether we’ve done enough. I don’t know what each of you has done to create a safer school, but I do know there is one thing you can do.

If your school hasn’t yet trained and developed a violence threat assessment team, maybe now is the time. We can’t prevent all mass shootings, but we can decrease the number by knowing what to watch for, identifying struggling individuals, and linking them to help. We can connect the dots that spell out warning signs and disrupt the pathway to violence before it reaches a harrowing conclusion.

For a snapshot of what setting up a threat assessment team involves, read this.  If you have considered taking action to train your staff in violence warning signs, threat assessment, and threat management, could there be a better time?

Youth Risk Prevention Specialists provides schools nationwide with the peace of mind that comes from knowing they have done everything they can to create a safe school environment. To learn how the comprehensive SafeAware© program delivers that, simply click here.

Special School Safety Opportunity

The school year has started, at very different times across the country. In Albuquerque, where I live, students were back in school on August 11. For many in the Midwest and Eastern regions of the country, the starting bell rang after Labor Day.

This means that many school administrators, student services staff and teachers missed special launch pricing on the Everyday School Safety online training.

I’m going to fix that.

I’m excited to offer an extraordinary price cut on the Individual Plan of this critical safety training. The reason for this, is that I want to make is really easy for you to take a look at the course and decide whether it’s something that could benefit your entire staff.

The first 100 people to enroll in the Everyday School Safety course Individual Plan before September 30 will be able to purchase a full year’s access to the course for just $5.00.

That’s right!

Just $5.00 for a comprehensive, research-based school safety course delivered on your schedule.

The course covers physical safety, school climate, drills, safety plans, suicide prevention, student fights, violence warning signs and an introduction to violence threat assessment. This is the same training I deliver on-site to schools across the country.

Get your $5.00 course by clicking here before September 30 (and before you lose your spot as one of the first 100).
