School violence is a global epidemic, yet most research has focused on student violence and student perspectives. Violence affects all school personnel in Pre-K through 12th grade schools. The American Psychological Association (APA) Task Force on Violence against Educators and School Personnel conducted a comprehensive assessment of nearly 15,000 teacher, school psychologist, school social worker, administrator, and staff perspectives of school violence during COVID-19.

In this briefing, which is being conducted in collaboration with the American Federation of Teachers, the National Association of School Psychologists, the National Association of Social Workers, the National Education Association, and the School Social Work Association of America, we will present important findings, school personnel voices, and recommendations for supporting legislative efforts on this public health issue for American schools.
