NEWESD 101 is pleased to announce the appointment of Alise Mnati as a new regional threat assessment coordinator. She joins Leon Covington, who launched the agency’s threat assessment program in Spokane County a year ago.

With Mnati on-board, the program will now expand to all seven counties served by NEWESD 101. Together, they will assist districts in implementing the Salem-Keizer Threat Assessment System, an evidence-based approach to school safety that combines school and community resources.

Mnati will not require a good deal of prep time, as she spent eight months interning with Covington; part of her required field experience for a master’s in Social Work through Boise State University (she graduated in August).

Mnati joins us with over a decade of experience supporting at-risk students through case-management and youth development programming in her previous roles at Spokane Public Schools, Communities In Schools and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Spokane County. 

She is looking forward to obtaining her clinical social work license this year. She is a graduate of North Central High and holds a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Whitworth University. Welcome to the team, Alise.
