Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2021, $578,722)

This mixed-methods study will produce information on individual, school, and community predictors of school violence. Using juvenile justice, educational, and publicly available neighborhood data (American Community Survey, Uniform Crime Reports), the project will compile a large, statewide secondary dataset on youth arrested in Florida, and conduct focus groups with school and justice system personnel. This will: 1) provide information on the extent to which school violence is a unique form of youth crime, 2) focus on various forms of serious school violence, 3) assess a host of predictors of school violence, and 4) prospectively predict school violence among already-arrested youth.  "Note: This project contains a research and/or development component, as defined in applicable law," and complies with Part 200 Uniform Requirements - 2 CFR  200.210(a)(14).
