Extended School Day/School Violence Prevention (ESD/SVP)

This state-funded program supports collaborative projects that address the problem of school violence through extended school day programs and/or other school violence prevention strategies/resources.  These collaborative projects can be initiated either by a school district or by community-based organizations. A comprehensive approach is encouraged which focuses on creating and maintaining a school culture of support, safety and security.  Priority is given to high needs school districts since they often have poor school performance and a high frequency of violent incidents.
