Tashjian, Christene A.; Silvia, E. Suyapa
Enacted by Congress in 1986, the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1986 (DFSCA) has been the federal government's primary effort to support drug education and prevention for school-aged youth. The findings from the fourth biennial survey, covering the performance period 1993-95, are presented in this report. Nearly all school districts in the United States (97 percent) participated in the program, and 87 percent of enrolled public school students received direct services. Findings from reviews of state and local programs and Governors' programs are presented. The report covers implementation, outcomes, and effectiveness of programs and comparisons to previous surveys are made in tables throughout. Five appendices present examples of survey forms used, as well as tabulations of states' and programs' responses. (EMK)
