    Summary

    The STOP School Violence Act is designed to improve school security by providing students and teachers with the tools they need to quickly recognize and respond to violent attacks, mitigate risk exposure, and prevent acts of violence. It provides funding to state, local, and Indian tribal governments to develop threat assessment and crisis intervention teams and anonymous reporting systems designed to identify threats before they materialize, including those that originate from individuals with mental health issues; and for the training of students, school personnel, and local law enforcement officers so that they can partner in preventing violent events from happening.


    This solicitation seeks applications that:

    • Develop and operate school threat assessment and specialized multidisciplinary intervention teams designed to identify threats before they materialize, including those that originate from individuals with untreated or unidentified mental illness to respond to identified threats and mental health concerns,
    • Development and implement technology that allows for anonymous reporting,
    • Create and/or operate a State School Safety Center

    Technology solutions shall enable teachers and school staff, students, and community members to anonymously report potential threats against individuals, schools, or other entities within a school district or the community in general. The solution should consider existing resources available in the area, new technology, or any combination of the two that can be used to proactively identify threats that would endanger teachers, students, administrators, public safety officers, or members of the community. This technology may be in the form of an app, hotline, or website or a combination of all of the above. The proposed technology solution should be used to help prevent incidents before they occur.

     

    History of Funding
