Project Alert (PA)
(Folsom Middle, Mills Middle, Mitchell Middle, & Sutter Middle)
Project Alert is a skills based curriculum, implemented in 7th & 8th grade, to teach students how to say "NO" to drugs. They learn to become aware of the many misleading media messages that bombard them about drugs and the high risks of associated with use. PA is evidence-based and designed to prevent teenage non-users from experimenting with alcohol, marijuana, tobacco and other drugs, as well as prevent teenage experimenters from becoming regular users.
