2019/20 Fair Notice – Leduc and Area Community Violence Threat Risk Assessment (VTRA) and Intervention Protocol

This memo is to inform our Black Gold families that Black Gold Regional Division No. 18 will (at all times) take actions seen as necessary to ensure immediate risk reduction, without delay.

Recognizing that traumatic events have impacted, and may continue to impact, many schools and communities across North America, Black Gold Regional Division No. 18 will continue to work together with partner agencies such as RCMP, local school divisions, Probation, Mental Health, and Family and Community Support Services for the common goal of threat reduction, and school and community safety, by proactively sharing information, advice and support that assists in the prevention of a potentially traumatic event.

Since 2015, the Division has been guided by and committed to the Leduc and Area Community Violence Threat Risk Assessment (VTRA) and Intervention Protocol.  The VTRA model is intended to support agencies and professionals working collaboratively as multidisciplinary teams focusing on best outcomes for children and youth, using early intervention, prevention, and aftermath strategies for crisis, trauma, violence, and conflict.

The VTRA protocol provides the Division confidence to address threats of violence and to plan appropriate interventions in support of children/youth and their families.

Families should be assured to know that Black Gold is working collaboratively with its community partners to protect our children and prevent future traumatic events.
