Drug Prevention Training Project for Counselors and Other Suport Services Personnel in the Public School Systems in Los Angeles County, California: Program Evaluation Report, 1991-1992.
Kester, Donald L.
This Drug Prevention Training Project focused on teaching school personnel to work with students involved in drugs and/or alcohol. This report evaluates the success of this effort which took place during the 1991-1992 academic year. The Project sought to accomplish six objectives: (1) recruit and train 800 school counselors, psychologists, nurses, and social workers; (2) hold eight half-day follow-up regional training meetings; (3) have at least 80% of the participants express increased confidence in counseling students referred to them for drug involvement; (4) build four regional support networks; (5) develop a script outline for program transmission via satellite; and (6) present to participants a model student database and tracking system. All six tasks were completed and the evaluator judged the program a success. Organizers completed all objectives and participants rated highly the training they received. Included in this evaluation are six appendices which feature copies of meeting announcements and agendas, evaluation results, resources, networking plans, and a networking directory. (RJM)
