Crime, Violence, Discipline, and Safety in U.S. Public Schools in 2019-20: Findings from the School Survey on Crime and Safety   [open pdf - 4MB]

From the Introduction: "Using data from the School Survey on Crime and Safety (SSOCS), this report presents findings both on crime and violence in U.S. public schools and on the practices and programs schools have used to promote school safety. SSOCS is managed and funded by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). NCES is part of the U.S. Department of Education's Institute of Education Sciences. The study has been fielded eight times, most recently during the 2019-20 school year. The 2019-20 SSOCS (SSOCS:2020) was funded in part by the Department's Office of Safe and Healthy Students. SSOCS collects data from public school principals about violent and nonviolent crimes in their schools. The survey also collects data on school security measures, school security staff, mental health services, parent and community involvement at school, and staff training. SSOCS data can be used to study how violent incidents in schools relate to the programs and practices that schools have in place to prevent crime"
