What Our Customers Say


Help Students Sooner for
Better Outcomes

Connecting the smallest dots for the earliest interventions.

This happens at every school, every day – a bus driver, teacher or janitor notices something a bit odd about a student’s behavior. Often, we rationalize it away hoping it’s an isolated incident or that someone else will handle it. But what if we’re already the third person this week who’s noticed and nothing has yet to be done?

School counselors and trained professionals can readily identify a student in need of support. With such early indications, problems may often be managed more simply with existing resources.

Document & Monitor

With concerns, tasks, notes and actions in one system, it requires less effort to monitor student progress and achieve positive outcomes.

Behavioral Threat Assessment (BTA)


Leverage Technology in Support of School Violence Prevention

Focus on the students, not the paperwork. Behavioral threat assessments (BTAs) are crucial tools for identifying and preventing violent incidents in schools. Increasingly states are requiring BTA teams, reporting and in some cases, specific methodologies. Raptor’s StudentSafe software is carefully designed to help support these initiatives so teams can focus more on the students and less on the administrative tasks.

Prevent One of the Leading Causes of Death in Students

The alarming rate of death by suicide among students requires all our attention. StudentSafe provides a secure platform for school counselors to assess, document and manage cases where students may be at risk of self-harm.

Using the tools, deemed industry best practice, including the Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) and SAFE-T, school counselors can analyze data about a student’s behaviors, attitudes, and mental wellbeing, providing a more comprehensive picture of their risk for suicide. Additionally, counselors can create personalized risk management plans, provide resources for students and guardians, and monitor their progress over time.

What Is StudentSafe? How Does It Work? Is It Secure?

We know you have a lot of questions. That’s why we’ve collected the most frequently asked and answered them for you below.  

What is StudentSafe?

  • StudentSafe is the first-of-its-kind platform to help schools recognize, document, support and manage the wellbeing of individual students. The hallmark of Raptor’s patented technology is the emphasis on cataloging low-level concerns so your teams can see a student in need of support at the very earliest signs of distress. Now all the small pauses and quick mental notes your staff makes in concern for a student can be easily entered into a single secure platform where your trained teams are able to see a picture forming of a student who may need help.

  • Additionally, StudentSafe includes assessment workflows and case management for threats of harm to self and others. The primary behavioral threat assessment models are available: Comprehensive School Threat Assessment Guidelines (CSTAG), the Federal or National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC) model and Salem-Keizer Cascade. For suicide risk assessment the Columbia-Suicide Risk Severity Scale and the SAFE-T tool are included.

How does StudentSafe work?

Any school staff member or administrator can log in to StudentSafe and enter a low-level concern by providing some basic information. Schools establish categories of concerns at the district level. When a staff member logs in, they select the student, a category and write a few notes. Additionally, the StudentSafe dashboard will provide a quick view for authorized staff to easily identify students that may need early help and support.

If the concern for the student’s safety warrants a suicide risk assessment or behavioral threat assessment, the situation is escalated within StudentSafe and your team follows the designated workflow and case management process. The student’s chronology is accessible to school counselors and the BTA team to help inform and streamline the process. All tasks, interviews and follow-ups are documented within StudentSafe helping to keep staff focused on the needs of the student and ensuring a secure, central repository of information.

What is meant by low-level concerns?

Low-level concerns are minor concerns a staff member may have about a student’s behavior or observance of the student. These can include irregular attendance, outbursts or meltdowns, unexplained bruising, new slang, appearing unkempt/disheveled, food insecurity, withdrawal, etc. 

Why should low-level concerns be addressed early?

Oftentimes, such behaviors or observances may not seem concerning as a single instance, however when others have similar encounters with the student and they are all documented in a central, secure place, we can easily see patterns and a need for early help and support for the student. The sooner we can help the student, the better the outcomes.

What is the basis for Safeguarding?

The software is based on a longstanding practice in the UK called safeguarding, where it is the law that schools (and other institutions) must document all forms of concerns related to the health and wellbeing of students. The goal is to safeguard students/children from harm such as any form of abuse, neglect, and mistreatment, as well as peer-on-peer abuse, grooming for gangs or other illicit activities, trafficking, self-harm and more. In 2021, Raptor Technologies purchased CPOMS, the leading provider of Safeguarding software in the UK with over 15,000 schools and more than a decade of history in improving the safety and wellbeing of UK students.

How does StudentSafe track these concerns?

Any school staff member or administrator can log in to StudentSafe and enter a low-level concern by providing some basic information. Schools establish categories of concerns such as mental wellbeing, home/family, relationships, etc. at the district level. When a staff member logs in, they select the student, a category and write a few notes. Districts can set alerts to notify counselors or other designated staff when a specific category is used (e.g., bullying). Additionally, the StudentSafe dashboard will provide a quick view for designated staff to easily identify students that may need early help and support.  

Are there privacy concerns with multiple staff having access to StudentSafe?

Most staff members will only be able to enter data, not view data. StudentSafe includes four-dimensional provisioning enabling your district to configure permissions in a highly detailed and precise manner. Additionally, Raptor is SOC2-certified providing the highest level of security on the market.

Raptor Technologies has been added to the list of signatories of the Student Privacy Pledge. We are committed to the Student Privacy Pledge and take great care and responsibility to both support the effective use of student information and safeguard student privacy and information security. More information about the pledge can be found here.

Also available at additional cost, BTA Team Training on the development and implementation of your chosen process.

Why do schools need StudentSafe?

  • To help manage the large volume of students needing support. StudentSafe empowers your staff with the ability to catalog low-level concerns so you can help students earlier when problems are more manageable. With your entire staff (custodians, bus drivers, food service personnel, etc.) able to enter their concerns you spread the responsibility and provide your counselor and support teams with more valuable information.

  • To help improve student outcomes. StudentSafe offers a highly intuitive platform where you can obtain a holistic view of individual students’ wellbeing. When school staff has a full picture, they are in a better position to collaborate with the student and caregivers and make decisions in the student’s best interest. Helping each student thrive drastically reduces threats of harm to self and others while also keeping your transfer rates low, and your completion rates high.

  • To help ensure your processes are conducted with fidelity and documented securely. StudentSafe helps reduce your liability when it comes to meeting compliance, requirements, and demonstrating that proven processes are followed with fidelity. The secure, cloud-based platform includes proven methodologies and thorough case management features for full documentation of findings, actions, and follow-through.
