This document reports on the success of a drug abuse education project after one year of implementation. Three of seven objectives were not achieved because the curriculum guides necessary for reaching those objectives were not produced. Significant progress was made on the following objectives: (1) determine and meet instructional and educational needs by constructing a list derived from a survey of the school personnel; (2) identify and put into operation a plan by which the school will work with community, civic, religious, and fraternal organizations in a program of drug abuse education; (3) select teachers from each grade to develop teaching methods, procedures, and written curriculum materials; and (4) hold an adult education class which will emphasize factual information, attitudes, and communication methods. The project engaged in dissemination activities of five types, including: (1) intra-district communications, (2) media dissemination, (3) project presentations, (4) cooperation with other agencies and institutions, and (5) requests and visitors. The appendix provides summaries of teacher training and adult workshops, and of priority ranking instruments of faculty and administration. (Author/PC)
