Get a Head Start

Patented StudentSafe™ technology gives your Behavioral Threat Assessment (BTA) teams a head start with access to a student’s full chronology already in the system.

Whether an assessment is escalated from a concern or initiated outright within StudentSafe, authorized team members can access a student’s chronology to understand prior concerns, threat assessments, interventions, progress and more. This can help teams identify root causes for threatening behavior more quickly.

Help Teams be Successful

The key to a successful BTA program is a focused multi-disciplinary team approach to helping students move off a path toward violence. This is not a simple endeavor, but StudentSafe provides the systematic workflow as well as a host of tools to help teams create a collaborative, student-centered program.

Assign tasks

Distribute work across the team so everyone knows their assignments, deadlines and next steps.

Set Reminders

Keep focused on the details and be prepared for progress checks and follow ups.

Document progress

Keep track of which interventions are most successful for a student and make sure nobody falls off the radar

Share information

Four-dimensional provisioning provides security and flexibility. Removing information silos is a primary goal for successful BTA teams.

Collaborate with team members

From task support to safety planning, the ability for teams to collaborate cannot be understated. StudentSafe provides a centralized, secure way for teams to do their best work.
