Bullying & School Violence*


Updated 9/17/19 – *Note that this measure is also a social determinant of health

Several incidents recently have received a great deal of media attention. Schools should be safe havens where the focus can be on education. Monitoring violence ensures that schools remain safe learning environments. There is a great deal of community concern that serious situations have become more common in recent years. Rates per 1,000 enrollment increased for violence against students and staff beginning 2017-18, along with possession/use of a controlled substance.

Notes:

  • WCSD enrollments used in the rate calculations do not include charter schools
  • Habitual truancy incidents do not include suspensions or expulsions
