OPSA Crisis Committee Mission Statement

To facilitate student and staff psychological well being, in order to enable schools to resume normal activities after a crisis, which would maximize educational performance.


The OSPA Statewide Crisis Response Team would like to assist school psychologists in their response to students and families in crisis situations by:

  • Gathering information about crisis prevention, intervention, and postvention and making this information available to OSPA members.
  • Providing a supportive network of professionals to increase knowledge and skills in crisis situations.
  • Increasing collaborative involvement in regional / state teams in preparation for possible response to a region / state crisis.
  • To provide on-site crisis assistance.

levels of crisis1
Levels of Crisis
  • Level 1
  • Level 2
  • Level 3
  • Level 4
  • Level 5
level 1
Level 1

The situation is confined to an individual or a small group. Building and support staff can comfortably manage the needed intervention (E.g. potential suicide, death in a student’s family, significant medical condition)

level 2
Level 2

A class or grade level has been impacted. Long-term care may be required for selected individuals. Building staff can manage the needed interventions. Referral to outside agencies is possible. (E.g. nonviolent death of a student or staff member, violence in the neighborhood, outbreak of infectious disease)

level 3
Level 3

An entire building requires immediate, intensive action. Other buildings may experience a lesser impact. Long-term internal support and the help of outside agencies will be necessary. (E.g. completed suicide, homicide/violence on school grounds, violent death of student / staff, accident of school bus, natural catastrophe impacting the community, outbreak of infectious disease)

level 4
Level 4

There is an impact on multiple buildings and/or a sizable portion of the district. Immediate and long-term, intensive intervention is needed. (E.g. Multiple suicides, violent attack on a school or schools, multiple deaths/accident involving several buildings, major catastrophe to a school, such as a fire or explosion)

level 5
Level 5

There is an impact on more than one school district and/or community. Local crisis personnel are personally impacted. Immediate and long-term, intensive interventions are needed. (E.g. Natural disasters, attacks of terrorism, major catastrophe to an entire community)
