Violence Prevention Project


This project will continue intensive violence prevention services provided during the 2009-2010 school year to the students at the Dr. Lydia T. Wright School of Excellence (Buffalo School District, #89). Students in the school experience many of the normal, developmental needs of students in the elementary and middle school grades. In addition, family, community, social and economic issues compound these problems resulting, for many students, in maladaptive behaviors in the school. The project will build on seven years of prior experience implementing school violence prevention programs in the Buffalo School District (BSD) provided to a number of schools as well as the 2009-2010 programs in the Dr. Lydia T. Wright School.
