Drug Prevention Education

The goal of the Office of Drug Prevention Education is to coordinate prevention and intervention plans and programs designed to help ensure the maintenance of safe and drug-free schools so that student academic achievement will be improved. Funded through Safe and Drug-Free Schools, drug prevention programs are offered from grade one through grade twelve.

This office supports teachers with training and resources to assist in effective instruction. Scientifically proven programs are utilized by Harford County Public Schools' teachers that promote character education, build self-esteem, provide resiliency and protective factors as well as educate students and parents about the dangers of drugs and drug abuse. For those students who have a problem with drugs, intervention programs are also offered.

Safe and Drug-Free Schools supports student programs that promote a healthy life-style such as SADD and STAR groups.
