Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2021, $846,480)
The project explores the role of poorly supervised and unstructured time at school on school violence and whether skilled supervision can address this. The study will: 1) identify when and where violence occurs at school, 2) conduct a randomized controlled trial of a modified version of the Positive School Safety (PSS) Program for school climate staff in 100 School District of Philadelphia schools to evaluate program effectiveness, and 3) investigate program implementation. The PSS program was originally created as a training program for school police to develop trauma-informed behavior management skills to engage students and promote school safety.
