dc.description.abstractOne of the primary reasons for conducting this study is to understand why students bring weapons to K-12 schools in the state of Connecticut. Another research goal was to identify ways to reduce weapon incidents in schools. Otte (2023) highlighted that for the school year 2021-2022, the incidents of students being caught with weapons at Connecticut schools reached the highest level since 2009. Moreover, according to the most recent data, that number has grown from 1,298 in the 2021-2022 school year to 1,432 in the 2022-2023 school year (EdSight, 2023). The concept of weapons in the K-12 schools in Connecticut raises many concerns for parents, educators, and school safety professionals. This research provides a first step to understanding what is happening in CT schools and exploring approaches that have successfully reduced it.
