Effective and comprehensive school-based prevention programs help students develop social skills, decision-making skills, and coping skills, all of which are important tools for kids in avoiding ATOD use. Since kids are often at-risk years before they actually use, prevention programs should begin as early as elementary school, with frequent reinforcement throughout middle and high school.
The 2020 school year has presented unique challenges to classroom-based learning during the public health crisis. COVID-19 continues to change the landscape of our children’s educational experience. Prevention education is more important than ever, and Compass Mark is meeting the needs of this reality.
