Substance Awareness Coordinator

The Substance Awareness Coordinator (SAC) works cooperatively with school personnel to coordinate the district's substance abuse education program. Some of the elementary prevention programs include an after school educational and activity based series that is available for 5-6 graders called "Mini-Bridge", Peer Mediation services which are offered to students in adjusting to the school by giving them a tour of the building and providing them with relevant information. In addition, the Substance Awareness Coordinator works cooperatively with Guidance, the APPLE Program, and Core Team to provide student services which include the Study Friends program which offers trained 6th graders to tutor younger students and focus groups that deal with a variety of issues such as peer relations, living skills and growing up drug-free.
