CSPV - $1 million grant to evaluate School Safety
IBS's Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence (CSPV) was highlighted by the Colorado Arts and Sciences Magazine for their amazing work in securing an almost $1 million grant to evaluate the Colorado Threat Assessment and Management Protocol within Colorado schools. CSPV will be working with the Colorado School Safety Resource Center (CSSRC) to see just how well the protocol that was developed in 2011 has been working. The grant is funded for three years in which they will update, refine, and pilot the protocol within five schools, then to follow up with the updated materials being used in an additional 30 schools around Colorado. Congrats to Sabrina Arredondo Mattson, the lead investigator and IBS research associate on the grant. And congrats to CSPV for their hard work to keep students safe from violence.
