Ball State University released a study of 750 high schools they contacted at random across the country to determine how high schools handle the issue of teen dating violence. Their results indicated that more than 3/4 of high schools appear not to have policies in place to respond to teen dating violence. The study also showed that more than 60% of principals who responded said their faculty and staff have not been provided training in the last two years, and nearly 70% of principals themselves had not been formally trained. You can find the study HERE and an article summarizing the study HERE.
