Threat Assessment Team
Information about Threat Assessment Teams
Governor Phil Murphy signed into legislature an act requiring the establishment of Threat Assessment Teams in public schools and supplementing (N.J.S.A. 18A:17-41.4) of the New Jersey Statutes.
The purpose of a threat assessment team is to provide school teachers, administrators, and other staff with assistance in identifying students with behaviors of concern, assessing those students' risk for engaging in violence or other harmful activities, and delivering intervention strategies to manage the risk of harm for students who pose a potential safety risk. Threat assessment teams' purpose is also to prevent targeted violence in the school and to ensure a safe and secure school environment that enhances the learning experience for all members of the school community.
REPORTING A CONCERN: If you are aware of or have information regarding violent behaviors or threats, please use the link below to report them. Reports may be made anonymously but should include as much detailed information as possible.
IMPORTANT...PLEASE NOTE: This form is being submitted electronically. There is NO guarantee that it will be read immediately. In the event that you or the student is in imminent danger, please call 911 immediately.
