The School Practitioner's Concise Companion to Preventing Violence and Conflict

Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses strategies for assessing and predicting the risk of school violence. The review is framed by a seven-step planning strategy: results-focused planning (RFP). Working with student, school, and community stakeholder groups in planning strategies to decrease school violence (the performance team), a status quo assessment is the first step in this planning strategy. Four critical status quo data collection tasks are discussed. A survey of students, the School Success Profile (SSP), is introduced as a tool that supports the status quo assessment for school social workers and other school-based professionals.

Keywords:   school violence prevention, school-based intervention, risk assessment, results-focused planning, status quo assessment, School Success Profile, school safety
