Threat Assessment

Schools are confronted with a variety of potential threats that must be evaluated and responded to in order to maintain a safe and secure learning environment for all students and staff. Broward County Public Schools’ Behavioral Threat Assessment (BTA) Procedures incorporate the most updated recommendations from national leaders in threat assessment, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the U.S. Secret Service, and the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS). With the goal of maintaining safe and secure schools, the Behavioral Threat Assessment (BTA) Procedures Manual outlines and provides guidance to school and district staff on the most current threat assessment policies and procedures for Broward County Public Schools, Florida. Additionally, these procedures are in compliance with current state legislation (Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, SB 7026, SB 7030).
