The Health and Opioid Abuse Prevention Education (HOPE) Curriculum is a K-12 curriculum developed for schools to meet the requirements of House Bill 367. The HOPE curriculum is a series of lessons, assessments and learning materials to develop students’ functional knowledge, attitudes and necessary skills to prevent drug abuse. The HOPE lessons are designed to be part of a larger substance abuse prevention unit within a school’s health education curriculum.
The middle and high school lessons are designed for a licensed health education teacher to implement within a health education class. The elementary curriculum is designed for a classroom teacher to implement in 20-minute lessons that are aligned with the English Language Arts Standards.
