Because there aren’t many drug prevention curricula available for schools to adopt, PIE in coordination with the Craven County Schools DARE officers and the Craven County Sheriff’s office, has expanded funding for the DARE program. The new curriculum emphasizes teaching detailed information about specific drugs and their negative effects based on prevention science. In addition, our DARE officers are being trained to teach the DARE curriculum, thereby putting a local “human face” on drug prevention in schools. These DARE officers do a fantastic job in our schools and make a difference in our students’ lives every day.
The teaching style of DARE has changed over the years and now highlights interaction with an emphasis on facilitation, rather than a static presentation model. That is, instead of listening to a lecture, students spend most class time working in small cooperative learning groups, guided by the DARE officer as they apply a decision-making model to develop their own unique ways of positively addressing high-risk situations in their lives.
We served 10 schools during the 2021-22 school year and will serve 15 schools during the 2022-23 school year, expanding the program to include ALL Craven County Schools elementary schools. Our plan is to expand to the middle schools in 2023-24.
We envision a world in which students everywhere are empowered to respect others and choose to lead lives free from violence, substance use, and other dangerous behaviors.
Thank you for supporting our vision for this program.
