Updated Position Statement: School Violence Prevention

2015-02-11 | , National Association of School Psychologists

NASP has updated our School Violence Prevention Position Statement  to reflect the association’s support for common sense, evidence-based gun safety policies relevant to the well-being of children and youth. NASP supports efforts to reduce violence in schools and communities at large that include strategies for eliminating inappropriate youth access to firearms, strategies to keep guns out of the hands of those who would harm students, and school policies which ensure that the only armed persons at schools are highly trained professionals (e.g., school resource officers).
