What to do When Your Student Might be Dangerous

Hello Everyone-

The recent incident at Platte Valley High School and the incident in the Amish school have highlighted the need to react appropriately and quickly to potentially dangerous problems. On occasion we at CCCOnline have had students make inappropriate posts that involve physically threatening other students or their faculty. Please let Alice Bedard-Voorhees, myself, or Rhonda Epper know of any of these threats as soon as they occur. In most cases they can be dealt with by having one of us call the student, but we have asked campus security and local police to contact the student when that was necessary.

We do have the added security of physical distance between ourselves and our students, but frequently our students are also students on a campus. We would prefer not to create unnecessary difficulties for our students, but it is best to err on the side of caution.

Thank you,
