D.A.R.E. Adds Bullying and Critical Thinking to its Program
CENTRAL POINT, Ore. – Central Point School Officers say the program D.A.R.E. is adding bullying and critical thinking to its program.
They say in past years the program only covered drugs and alcohol.
“Sometimes there’s a disconnect between fifth grade and their high school years and that’s something we’re trying to fix now,” Officer J.R. Godley said.
Officer Godley says the program starts at the fifth grade level, with parent permission. He says a second officer will be working full time with him. Godley says they will focus on building relationships with students, so students have someone to turn to when in need.
