D.A.R.E.

D.A.R.E. is an innovative project designed to build a strong, drug free youth. This project uses a curriculum designed to help young people resist the pressures of substance abuse and violence while developing strong decision making skills. The program focuses on accurate information about substance abuse with the major focal points being marijuana, tobacco and alcohol. The lessons deal with the consequences of abuse, building self-esteem, providing ways to resist and identify peer pressure, and alternatives to drug use.

The curriculum is taught by Officers Tom Schmidt, Scott Wilcoxson, Micheal Wells and Ben Hankins, highly trained uniform law enforcement officers who are assigned to a classroom and have immediate credibility with the students. The D.A.R.E. Program addresses drug/alcohol use and violence (such as bullying) on a proactive approach rather than a reactive one. D.A.R.E. was initially implemented in the Franklin County Public Schools in 1986. The pilot program proved so successful that D.A.R.E. was adopted as a part of the elementary curriculum in the Spring of 1987. If you would like more information on the D.A.R.E. program, please contact the Community Services Officer at 875-8523.
