Act 44 requires all schools to develop a Threat Assessment Team that is responsible for “the assessment of and intervention with students whose behavior may indicate a threat to the safety of the student, other students, school employees, school facilities, the community, or others.” 

The purpose of the team is to:

  1. Identify individuals/situations where behavior causes concern for violence and capacity to carry out a threat;
  2. Gather the most relevant information about the student’s communications and behaviors;
  3. Collect and share this relevant information in a lawful and ethical manner, including complying with relevant federal and state privacy laws;
  4. Assess the individuals/situations in context based on the totality of information available; and
  5. Identify strategies to prevent violence and mitigate impact of harm to the student, school, and/or community.
