School Drug Abuse Policy Development Guide: For School and Community Officials.
Pacific Inst. for Research and Evaluation, Napa, CA.
This training guide is designed to provide communities with the information they will need to hold a substance abuse policy conference and to implement and evaluate the developed policy. The introduction provides background information on the Drug Enforcement Administration's 1976 conference on School Policy Development, and lists the 15 components that conference identified as elements of a comprehensive substance abuse policy, e.g., due process issues, illegal drug activity, suspension and expulsion policies. General findings from 20 pilot conferences are presented and discussed. Section one contains the Coordinator's Guide which describes main issues to examine before holding a conference. The second section is a Policy and Procedures Guide which contains responses of the 20 pilot conferences to the 15 policy and procedures guidelines identified by the original conference. Models or synthesized examples of policy statements and procedures are also presented. Section three is a Process Guide which includes step-by-step suggestions for the process involved in holding a conference, recommended conference format, and suggestions for implementing, communicating, and evaluating the developed policy. A sample parent and student survey questionnaire and introductory letter are also included. (JAC)
