Supplementary notes

*SROs, or School Resource Officers, are defined by the U.S. Department of Justice as "sworn law enforcement officers responsible for safety and crime prevention in schools." SROs have the ability to make arrests, respond to calls for service, and document incidents that occur within their jurisdiction.

The source defines a school shooting as every time a gun is brandished, fired, or a bullet hits school property for any reason, regardless of the number of victims (including zero), time, day or the week, or reason, including gang shootings, domestic violence, shootings at sports games and after hours school events, suicides, fights that escalate into shootings, and accidents.
Data may differ based on what definition is used.
