Abstract: Guidelines for the control and reduction of the school gang problem include assessment, goal setting, objectives, strategies, implementation, and evaluation. The proposed school antigang program is built around five strategies: social opportunities, social support, suppression, community mobilization, and organizational development and change. Objectives of a special school program must be the creation of a structure for flexible curriculum and the ensuring of a safe school environment; application of consistent sanctions and means to protect students and the surrounding community from gangs; appropriate training, staff selection, data retrieval systems, and evaluation; early intervention to prevent and deter gang involvement; vocational education, job preparation, and employment experiences; parental involvement; and liaison, coordination, and outreach to community agencies and programs. The manual details organizational requirements, components of a training program, and program characteristics appropriate for schools with differing grade levels. Program evaluation design and implementation are also discussed. Appended glossary, 2 tables, and a 33-item bibliography
