Evaluations on Adults Charged With a Sexual Crime

School Violence Assessments
School violence assessments are conducted with children and adolescents who have made direct or indirect threats against school faculty or other students. The purpose of this assessment is to identify the degree of risk that the student poses to carry out the threatened violence and additionally to provide recommendations to the school and the student’s family about how to respond to the threat. These recommendations are made with the primary goal of protecting the school community; however, the academic rights of the student who made the identified threat are also recognized as being critically important.
