Violence Prevention

How to Stop Violence: Awareness, Education, PrevenStudents deserve a safe environment in which to live, learn and grow. Unfortunately, the threat of violence is a presence in many communities and has grown in a number of schools across the country.

Staying involved with students’ lives and schools can help prevent conflicts or other problems from escalating to violence and help protect your child from becoming a victim.

Parents, school officials and community members working together can help prevent and reduce violence and make students’ schools and communities safer for all.
