Abstract:

CSSI is a large-scale, integrated research effort intended to build knowledge about what works to increase the safety of schools nationwide. It was launched in early 2014 in response to a congressional appropriation of $75 million. Although NIJ has primary responsibility for its administration, CSSI involves just over 20 federal partners. The award amount for testing innovative programs in schools is $45,036,399. This award is for conducting new and innovative pilot programs and evaluating their impact, so as to determine what is effective in keeping schools safer. NIJ is supporting 15 pilot projects in local schools for the purpose of implementing and testing innovative programs and strategies in urban and rural schools. For the purpose of using research to assess impact, $18, 249, 540 is being awarded to support nine research projects that will investigative which school safety programs and interventions are having the most impact. A total of $3,550,000 is being awarded to improve school-safety data collection. In this effort, NIJ is working with four federal partners to improve survey and incident data on school safety nationwide. A total of $2,350,000 is being awarded to review current approaches to school safety. NIJ is convening stakeholders and reviewing existing technologies and approaches, so as to determine what is currently being done to make students safe. Awardee names, project titles, and award amounts are listed in a table. Narrative descriptions are provided for 15 projects, along with their award amounts and numbers.
