6.02 Weapons at School

This page includes data from Cooperative Educational Service Agency 6 (CESA 6) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on weapons at school. The Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS) survey asks high school students to report if they have carried a weapon―or have been threatened with a weapon―on school property in the past year. The YRBSS is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction in conjunction with the CDC.
