Billie-Jo Grant, Ph.D., Magnolia Consulting, LLC, Senior Researcher and Evaluator 805-550-9132 and bgrant@magnoliaconsulting.org

Charlottesville, VA. (May 10, 2016) – An estimated one out of ten K-12 students will experience school employee sexual misconduct during their school career. Now a Charlottesville-based education research firm is leading a national study to examine how schools respond to such incidents. The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) has awarded a $445,000 research grant to Magnolia Consulting, LLC as part of its Comprehensive School Safety Initiative, a federal program that in 2015 awarded $69 million in grants to study the causes and consequences of school violence. Study results will inform efforts to improve policies and programs that protect children.
