Smyer, Roxane; Baenen, Nancy
This report itemizes the Austin (Texas) Independent School District's (AISD) expenditures of federal funds for 1988-89 that were designed to supplement the school district's efforts directed at drug and alcohol abuse education and prevention. Some funding was used to determine the extent of the drug problem in the district, what curriculum and material changes were needed for each program, and if the funded programs were effective. The following programs received major funding: (1) Student Assistance Program (SAP); (2) Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE); (3) Peer Assistance and Leadership (PAL); and (4) Prevention and Remediation in Drug Education (PRIDE). Each program and the allocation of funds within it are discussed. The effectiveness of each program and the overall projects, counselor training, and summer activities are discussed, using data reported from student and teacher questionnaire responses. Two references and 22 figures are included. (JS)
