Under the leadership of the superintendent, school, police and fire departments, and other agencies within the Town, the establishment of the Natick School Threat Assessment and Response System (STARS) was formed to address what districts can do to reduce or eliminate risk to life and property (mitigation/prevention), to plan for the worst case scenario (preparedness), what steps to take during a crisis (response) and how to restore the learning environment after a crisis (recovery).
