ZANESVILLE, Ohio – The Muskingum Valley Educational Service Center (MVESC) is providing free Comprehensive School Threat Assessment Guidelines (CSTAG) training to school districts in Eastern and Southern Ohio. The training sessions began in September and have been held throughout the region with more than 230 school personnel from about 20 districts completing the training so far. Additional training sessions are scheduled in late November.
This training meets all requirements for House Bill 123 signed this year by Governor Mike DeWine to help schools identify threat and provide guidance on how to effectively address threat in schools. The evidence-based training, created by Dr. Dewey Cornell, is interactive and is designed for school-based multidisplinary teams.
