Paid for by the state, this partnership with Navigate360 gives South Dakota school districts access to the leading training program for School Threat Assessment teams at no cost to you, whatsoever. Why? Because suicide and targeted violence are preventable. When our teams have the knowledge and skills to identify, assess and intervene, they can help guide students to a safer path.
Brought to you by Navigate360, the leader in holistic school safety solutions and Dr. Dewey Cornell, author of the Comprehensive School Threat Assessment Guidelines (CSTAG), you have the opportunity to train your school threat assessment teams via the CSTAG Level 1 and Level 2 Training program.
There is no way schools can avoid doing threat assessments. It’s a question of how they are going to do them.

Your work is plenty challenging and schedules are busy. More training may not be at the top of your list. Yet, your role on a multidisciplinary school threat assessment team is unlike any other.
Each member of the team brings varying perspectives and varying skills – from school administrator to SPED coordinator, to counselor, to law enforcement, to teaching staff. CSTAG Team Training ensures everyone has the necessary knowledge and skills to be an effective team member. Consider the following:
CSTAG Team Training is proven to more than double participant’s knowledge of behavioral threat assessment.
Participants achieve a high degree of threat classification accuracy following the CSTAG Team Training program.
Regardless of prior experience, CSTAG Team Training reduces group variation and brings the team members to a common standard.
All of us intuitively make a subjective assessment of danger when there is a threat or an appearance of a threat. Threat assessment is an automatic process.
To create a threat assessment program that is fair, objective, unbiased and safe requires a proven methodology and team training.
Bonus: Navigate360 offers technology designed to facilitate the assessment and case management of behavioral threats and suicide risks. We will share more during training sessions or you can contact Bob Kraft at email@example.com.
