dc.description.abstract Although there has been extensive research focused on school violence, very little research has been conducted on the relationship between perceptions of school violence and personal safety and perceived academic performance of students in rural areas. The primary purpose of this study is to investigate how self-reported perceptions of school violence and personal safety are related to perceived marks in math and ELA in a small rural Manitoba school division. Data were collected from two groups of students (Grades 4 to 6 and Grades 7 to 12) who completed different versions of the Canadian Public Health Association Safe School Survey (CPHA) and also answered questions prepared by the school division’s Health and Safety Committee regarding their perceptions of individual math and ELA marks. The implications of the findings of this study for the school division are discussed and suggestions for future research are provided. en_US
