School board advised of threat assessment protocols

In the wake of the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut before Christmas, Livingstone Range School Board has been assured there are systems in place to assess possible threats.
Trustees were presented information Jan. 8 by Livingstone Range associate superintendent of administrative services Darryl Seguin explaining the division has protocols in place for violence risk assessment.
“The information we provide to our school counsellors and school administrators is top notch,” Seguin said.
Fair notice is given to investigate all threats and staff within each building have received the appropriate training.
“Our response in Livingstone Range is certainly proactive and preventative,” Seguin said. “We have mechanisms in place when threats occur.”
Seguin also reminded trustees he has had conversations with all RCMP detachment commanders within the school division.
“One of the things we discussed in those meetings is our lockdown procedures,” Seguin said, adding the RCMP have been invited to the schools to participate. “We have good working relationships with all our detachments.”
The RCMP can also be called for advice.
“I think that safety is paramount in our school division,” trustee Shannon Scherger said. “I appreciate the proactive work.”
