A Self-Evaluation Report of Wisconsin Public Schools: Comprehensive Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Programs. Bulletin No. 92139.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison. Bureau for Pupil Services.
In December 1990 all Wisconsin school administrators and Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse (AODA) program coordinators received The Comprehensive AODA Program Checklist which contains 46 items that describe comprehensive AODA program components and key elements of the implementation process. This document presents analysis and results of the survey, as well as conclusions and recommendations. These conclusions are cited: (1) the concept of comprehensive AODA programs has been strongly adopted by Wisconsin school districts; (2) the pattern of implementation suggests that schools have implemented a variety of prevention and intervention strategies to combat the problem of alcohol and other drug abuse; (3) most school districts are at a comparable point in development of comprehensive programs, although a small number lag behind; (4) the most frequently low-scoring checklist items were Employee Assistance Programs, peer programs, trained district administrators, and trained school members; (5) student policies and ongoing program appraisal were the most frequently high-scoring items; and (6) positive correlations were exhibited between the basic program framework achieved and previous state funding. In light of these findings seven recommendations are made, focusing on actions to be continued or initiated by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. (ABL)
