The funds are provided to all of Tennessee's local school systems for one or more the following purposes:

  • Innovative violence prevention programs
  • School Resource Officers
  • Conflict resolution
  • Disruptive or assaultive behavior management
  • Improved school security
  • Peer mediation
  • Training for employees on the identification of possible perpetrators of school-related violence
