The effectiveness of these programs will also be evaluated based on the opinions of the school counselors surveyed. A survey was sent to 159 school guidance counselors within Wisconsin CESA districts #10 and #11. This survey was used to collect data pertaining to the violence intervention/prevention programs currently being used within their schools. Data was also collected regarding counselor’s perceptions of each program’s effectiveness. iii The data collected was analyzed to determine response percent rates for the 12 violence intervention/prevention strategies and programs listed in the survey along with four other survey questions. The results of this study will provide a better understanding of the violence intervention/prevention programs that are being used in Wisconsin public schools. It will also provide information as to each program’s effectiveness according to the school guidance counselors surveyed. This data can then be used by schools in their pursuit to implement violence intervention/prevention programs that will assist them in creating a safer learning environment for all students and staff. iv
