School Violence

With bullying, mental health and wellness issues, overwhelming amounts of stressors, and tragic precedents, the fear of school violence is not unfounded.  Furthermore, according to the CDC, a 2015 survey showed that "nationwide, 4.1% of students had carried a weapon (e.g., a gun, knife, or club) on school property on at least 1 day during the 30 days before the survey," and "nationwide, 6.0% of students had been threatened or injured with a weapon (e.g., a gun, knife, or club) on school property one or more times during the 12 months before the survey."  In an effort to help prevent and mitigate school violence, this section includes resources on several school violence topics. From school climate and connectedness; to promoting the See Something, Say Something campaign; to knowing what steps to take in the event of a bomb threat, this section addresses various forms of school violence by providing information including statistics, handouts, and other resources.
