The current study reports on the perceptions of school personnel from 8 elementary schools (n=247, 90% female) about to implement the WITS-LEADS school violence prevention program. Staff was questioned about the implementation of universal prevention measures and relations with the perception of mobilization factors (principal’s leadership, shared vision of needs and solutions, self-efficacy to intervene). Results show that school personnel identifies specific gaps for the prevention of aggressive conducts. Staff’s roles (classroom teachers, other instructional staff, support staff) was associated with differences in relation to the role of mobilization factors, which supports the necessity of a differentiated approach in the implementation of violence management and prevention plans by school administrators.

Keywords : Violence à l’école, mesures de prévention universelle, mobilisation du personnel, fonctions du personnel, école primaire, school violence, universal prevention measures, staff mobilization, staff roles, elementary school.
