The November/December 2020 issue of the Illinois School Board Journal covers the critical convergence of student well-being, school safety and security, and social and emotional factors for students and adults.

The National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC), a division of the U.S. Secret Service, has established threat assessment protocols for school districts. With the goal of preventing targeted violence and keeping children safe at school, law enforcement collaborates with the education and wellness communities to study incidents of school violence. Read more about the important work of threat assessment and the new initiatives behind Safe2Help Illinois.

Vienna-area schools bring together stakeholders from the local mental health community, law enforcement, education, health care, and local institutions to address and be prepared for safety and security issues. Learn more about the program from HSD 13-3 Superintendent Joshua Stafford. We’ll also hear from Triad CUSD 2 (Troy) about how and why behind school resource officers, and more from educators and experts.

The Journal continues response to current events with messages from IASB leadership. Look for the print edition wherever you get your school board member mail, or read the November/December Journal online.
