Behavioral Risk Assessment Training | View Brochure
CES offers a licensed evidence-based behavioral risk assessment training program, which is used in several other states, including Virginia, Illinois, Colorado, New Jersey, and Vermont. This training program assists Missouri K-12 schools to identify, prevent and mitigate behavior issues of both students and adults. This training provides teams with the knowledge and resources to develop school-based behavioral risk assessment teams, as well as processes and strategies to assist in successfully managing individual cases.
Comprehensive School Safety Assessments
This program identifies gaps in safety and provides recommendations to assist the district in prioritizing safety initiatives. Safety assessments support the school district in identifying exposures and risk, while also suggesting possible “reasonable measures” to make your schools safer.
School Safety Related Training Programs
MSBA’s CES has developed a number of safety related school training programs including Transportation Safety, Student Radicalization, Active Shooter, Crisis Communication, Emergency Operations Planning, School Safety Legal Updates, Behavior Issues on the School Bus and more. If you have a special training need, CES will find the resource needed.
Missouri Alert Network (MAN)
The Missouri Alert Network (MAN) provides rapid notification to Missouri’s schools in the event of a statewide emergency or other situation that might endanger the security of Missouri students. The Network allows state officials to contact local schools within minutes of an emergency through an appropriate voice, text, or email message. Read more and enroll additional district staff here.

The Center for Education Safety (CES) is the only state wide school safety organization in Missouri. It is a program supported by and operated as part of the Missouri School Boards’ Association (MSBA). The CES is dedicated to enhancing various aspects of emergency planning, preparedness, and safety and security in schools throughout Missouri and the nation—pre-K, K-12, and post-secondary. The services provided by the CES fall into three categories—Leadership, Information Resource, and Technical Assistance and Training.
Events produced or sponsored by the Center for Education Safety usually take place in Missouri. The CES promotes some events that are safety and security related that take place outside of Missouri or that are virtual events (web casts, video conferences, etc.). The content of events produced or sponsored by the CES is often appropriate for schools throughout the nation. Live and archived video programs produced by the CES and available from the CES web site are available to viewers outside of Missouri and around the world—wherever there is Internet access.
The CES is guided by the following core principles:
Teaching and learning do not occur without a safe and secure environment for learners and those who instruct and support them. Indeed, high performance cultures at pre-K to 12 schools and higher education require a nurturing context that is dependent upon a safe and secure environment. Safety at pre-K to 12 schools and higher education institutions must be a community focused effort—community engagement is a requisite. This requires the collaboration of federal, state, and local policymakers, those who administer and manage schools as well as higher education, law enforcement, and other emergency responders in planning and preparedness.
The CES was launched on September 1, 2010.
