Guidelines for School-Based Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Programs.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
This paper contains the revised drug education guidelines for the state of California, which emphasize prevention of alcohol and drug abuse. The materials define school-based alcohol and drug abuse prevention programming as a comprehensive process that not only provides students with accurate information about alcohol and drugs, but also enhances self-esteem, communication skills, decision-making skills, and interpersonal relationships. The guidelines include: (1) a series of recommendations to administrators; (2) a general philosophy of and approach to school-based prevention; and (3) examples of effective programs dealing with drug and alcohol information, affective behavior, peer and family relationships, and life/career planning. Suggestions for implementing a comprehensive school-based prevention program focus on curriculum design, inservice training, staffing, counseling, and parent and community involvement. Relevant sections of the California Education code are cited, along with a list of resources and services. (NRB)
