National electronic seminar on school substance abuse policy
Date: Thursday, February 19, 2009
Time: 12:00-1:15 p.m. Pacific
Underage drinking by high school and university students continues to be a significant problem. Preventing the use of alcohol on campuses is an important goal of administrators because of the many negative consequences resulting from alcohol use and abuse. When schools establish alcohol policies that clearly state expectations and penalties regarding alcohol use by students, they help reinforce the unacceptability of underage drinking.
This audio call will address the following questions:
- Why is a substance-abuse policy important?
- What should a comprehensive substance-abuse policy include?
- How should a policy be communicated?
