Drug Free Schools and Communities Act. End of Year Report.
The Drug Free Schools and Communities Act (DFSCA) program exists in each of the 84 Jefferson Parish public schools and a portion of the parish's non-public schools. Direct services are offered to public school students at the school site as part of the school program. Special activities are planned for adults and community members. The evaluation of the DFSCA program focuses on the areas of staff, services, and materials. The evaluation design includes two components--an implementation study and an assessment of effectiveness. Implementation data were gathered to assess the type, frequency, and level of services, degree of experience of staff, depth and breadth of school level programs, the level of training/inservices provided, and the appropriateness of materials as related to program objectives. The level of effectiveness was measured by an analysis of monthly report data, an analysis of staff services as linked to the report data, surveys of students and parents participating respectively in the Camp Abbey retreat and the Family Awareness Night programs, and an analysis of suspension data related to substance abuse policy violations. Appendixes constituting the bulk of the document include an explanation of the intervention procedures used, a summary of monthly reports, participation survey results, Camp Abbey data, Family Awareness Night data, and copies of the study instruments.
