Abstract

This thesis addressed the topic of staff preparedness for acts of violence in school settings. A survey was sent to all staff members at a middle school in the northeast United States. The majority of participants disagreed that they have the professional knowledge to effectively deal with violence, have received appropriate training to deal with violence, and have the confidence to effectively handle violent situations at school. Recommendations for improving staff preparedness for school violence are offered and suggestions for future research are given.
