This final report is designed to present a concise and practical overview of violence and vandalism with a particular emphasis on some of the factors underlying these problems and the various strategies that may be helpful in mitigating them. The report is intended primarily for the administrators, students, teachers, parents, and school staff that constitute the educational community and, accordingly, the various strategies suggested are school-based and educationally oriented. The report is divided into six sections. The first section is a concise overview of the extent of school related violence and vandalism in the nation. The second discusses several of the factors influencing the nature and development of these problems, including intruders, disciplinary and suspension policies, learning disabilities, truancy, and school size. The third section sets out the various strategies and models useful to schools in reducing violence and vandalism. The fourth contains a series of suggested initiatives that the community may undertake to help implement the strategies discussed in the previous section.
