In accordance with Act 18, all 17 WCASD schools have established threat assessment teams comprised of trained administrators, counselors, psychologists, intervention specialists, and mental health specialists. Building teams may also involve nurses, school resource officers, or local law enforcement when needed. Parents are involved when a threat event occurs and are provided guidance and information regarding local resources. Student threat events are documented and reported to the Pennsylvania Department of Education at the end of every school year.
