Teachers, principals and other school officials work hard each day to offer the highest quality of education to Ohio's youth. However, education quality becomes a moot point when drug use impacts the attentions of Ohio's families.
Start Talking! asks Ohio’s schools to support this youth drug prevention initiative and help to build a drug-free future for Ohio’s students by utilizing the following resources: Parents360 Rx, Know! and 5 Minutes for Life.
Below are a few ways you can incorporate the drug prevention messaging throughout your school.
