A Follow-up Report on Restructuring Schools: Reducing Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse among Adolescents through a School-Community-University Partnership Program in the Federal Way School District.
James, William H.
This document presents a follow-up report on a school-community partnership program developed and field tested by the Federal Way School District in Washington State from 1989 through 1993 and designed to focus on substance use intervention and prevention at Continuation and Contract-Based Education (CBE) High Schools. This report describes the level of substance use by at-risk alternative high school students who participated in a school-community partnership program that used a student assistance program/case management model to reduce substance use among at-risk students. This report provides 15 months of data on students, as well as an evaluation of student assistance programming, and includes the results yielded from tracking students required to complete education classes, intensive outpatient programs, residential programs, and aftercare programs. Evaluation results are presented which show lower overall combined diagnosed rates for substance abuse and chemical dependency over the course of the project. Included in this report are a project overview, summary of findings, detailed discussion of findings, case interviews, recommendations, a look at program restructuring for the 1992-1993 school year, a glossary, and appendices (Contains 18 references.)
