Elementary Programs

Drug Free Schools (DFS) & Tobacco Use Prevention Education (TUPE)

Grades 4-6  address topics include awareness of the physical impact of smoking, chewing tobacco and substance abuse. Skills of conflict management, character development and tolerance are introduced to solve confrontations that would lead to violence. Students interact with officers from the Davis Police Department through the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) program.

Grades 7-9  address issues across the curriculum with materials created by teachers and some designated lessons from the Quest Program. Substance abuse, refusal skills, tolerance/diversity and antiviolence are emphasized in seventh grade social studies classes while the physical problems are addressed in eighth grade science. Emphasis is directed to building a strong peer helper's program in grades 7 through grade 12. Support training is provided for junior high school peer helpers in dealing with diversity, tolerance, substance abuse, etc.

Grades 10-12 require a semester-long health class as a graduation requirement. At tenth grade, trained peer helpers from the junior high select whether to continue as Peer Helpers and work under the direction of counselors or become Health Advocates who work with school nurses. The program emphasizes substance abuse prevention and cessation, diversity and tolerance and social relationships.
