Federal Activities Addressing Violence in Schools. Special Report.
Barrios, Lisa C., Comp.
Many federal agencies actively address the problem of violence in schools by acquiring and disseminating information about school violence and supporting strategies that work to reduce violence. This document provides an inventory of federal activities addressing violence in schools. It was designed to facilitate coordination of federal school violence-prevention activities and enhance collaboration on future projects. These activities either directly address the problem of violence that occurs on school property, at school events, or on the way to or from school or they focus on the precursors of violence. After a brief description of each project, study, or organization, the lead or funding agency and the collaborating federal agencies are identified, with contact information also provided. Nonfederal partners are listed in the project descriptions. The reports are divided into categories: surveillance activities, evaluation research activities, other research activities, research synthesis and application activities, programmatic activities, and resource and technical assistance centers.
