As the school year approaches, the State Comptroller's Office has released a report on school violence. 

The state requires public and charter schools to document violent and disruptive incidents taking place on school property. 


During the 2017-2018 school year, there were more than 32,000 of those incidents including assaults, alcohol or drugs, weapons possession, bomb threats, and one homicide. 

New York City schools have 40% of all students in the state but they reported 56% of the violent and disruptive incidents.
