School Safety

Unfortunately, we live in a time where school violence is on the forefront of our minds. The MSD of North Posey County wants to do everything we can to keep your children safe and allow our parents and students to focus on their learning and growing.

Therefore, we are utilizing a new online educational program on school safety. This program is a way to learn about the threat assessment process and how it can prevent violence. In particular, this program:

  • Helps to gain an understanding of the threat assessment process we are using in our schools to prevent violence.
  • Has been successfully field-tested; all groups demonstrated large gains in knowledge of threat assessment and improved willingness to report threats to school officials after completing the program.
  • Is designed to be a problem-solving approach to violence prevention that involves assessment and intervention with students who have threatened violence in some way.

The primary goal of threat assessment is safety for everyone by staying ahead of violence.

We encourage all our Viking Parents and students, aged 12 and up, in the North Posey School District to complete this program.
