Department of Justice - STOP School Violence Grant

The OSDE Crisis Team was developed through a STOP School Violence Grant from the Department of Justice. This grant is in partnership with the Oklahoma School Safety and Security Institute and Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management. 
The purpose of the STOP School Violence Grant is to improve school security by providing Oklahoma local educational agencies (LEAs) with tools to increase school safety and identify students who may require mental health supports. The Crisis Team supports Oklahoma school districts in crisis prevention, preparedness, intervention, and response. This team can respond to both hazard-based and threat-based school crises.
The OSDE Crisis Team is tasked with the following overall goals: 1) Select and train from existing OSDE staff a team, the Crisis Response and Recovery Team, to be deployed to local education agencies in the event of a school emergency or crisis. 2) Provide evidence-based prevention and intervention crisis curriculum training to schools throughout the state. This training will help schools develop crisis preparedness plans and specifically address how to identify students who may need additional behavioral or mental health supports. 3) Assist schools in the implementation of a multi-tiered system of support for crisis management, which will include mental health interventions.
