Drug Awareness and Prevention
Our school board has two DART (Drug Awareness Resource Team) technicians who support schools year round. You might know them as the drug ladies. They provide drug awareness, prevention and intervention in our elementary and secondary schools. They may support referrals and liaise with outside services to help link students and parents with the appropriate programs available.
