National Center for Education Statistics
The National Center for Education Statistics collects data on crime and violence in U.S. public schools through the School Survey on Crime and Safety (SSOCS). This First Look report presents findings from the 2009-10 School Survey on Crime and Safety data collection. Developed and managed by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) within the Institute of Education Sciences and supported by the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools of the U.S. Department of Education, SSOCS asks public school principals about the frequency of incidents, such as physical attacks, robberies, and thefts, in their schools. Portions of this survey also focus on school programs, disciplinary actions, and the policies implemented to prevent and reduce crime in schools. Appended are: (1) Standard Error Tables A-1; (2) Methodology and Technical Notes; (3) Description of Variables; and (4) 2009-10 School Survey on Crime and Safety Questionnaire. (Contains 25 tables and 11 footnotes.)
