D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) is a cooperative program that is conducted by the school system, law enforcement, and parents. Its curriculum consists of elementary students K-5, middle school students, 7th grade, high school students in the 10th grade, and D.A.R.E. parent training. Elementary school students in the 5th grade have a 10 lesson program that consists of teaching students the harmful effects of tobacco, alcohol and marijuana. They are also taught how to resist violence and peer pressure and taught different ways to say “NO” to drugs. It explores other alternatives that students can participate in other than doing drugs such as sports and other after school activities. At the end of the curriculum each student writes an essay, and winners are chosen. During the Culmination Program each winner is presented with a special prize. Each participant receives a D.A.R.E. t-shirt and a certificate. There is always a special guest speaker that is drug free. Middle school students in the 7th grade have a 10 week continuous program called Keepin' It REAL that re-enforces what they were taught in elementary school and explores new techniques that students can use to resist drugs. The D.A.R.E. Community Program is open to any parent of a past or present D.A.R.E. student. It instructs parents on ways that they can help their child resist drug abuse. The program also explores other alternatives the parent(s) and student(s) can be involved in together. Please visit or for more information about the D.A.R.E. Program.
