Title IV

SAFE AND DRUG FREE SCHOOLS GRANT

Yearly, through Title IV funding, money is provided to the State that is to be used for Safe and Drug Free Schools programming. The West Virginia Department of Education in turn provides each county the opportunity to apply for portions of the federal SADFS funding through a local grant process. Each county is entitled to portions of the state grant. These portions are based upon county enrollments.

The grant consists of activity plans that address the areas of Alcohol, Tobacco, Drugs, and Violence. Plans are derived from needs assessments and can include only those programs that are researched based. In additions, a budget must be written to explain how the funding will be spent.

As part of the Federal monitoring process, LEA’s, or Local Education Associations, are required to provide a procedure that allows for public review of the grant application. In accordance with this compliance standard, the Mineral County Safe and Drug Free Schools Grant is provided on the county website for your review.

Any questions or concerns can be addressed to Linda Miltenburger, SADFS Coordinator, at the Mineral County Board of Education Office.

GRANT APPLICATION

SELECTING AND IMPLEMENTING RESEARCH BASED PROGRAMS

Each recipient shall design and implement its programs for youth, based on research or evaluation that provides evidence that the programs used prevent or reduce drug use, violence, or disruptive behavior among youth. In designing and improving its youth programs, a grant recipient shall take into consideration its needs assessment and measurable goals and objectives, and shall select and implement only programs grounded in scientifically based research. These programs must have demonstrated effectiveness or promise of effectiveness in preventing or reducing drug use, violence or disruptive behavior. Other behaviors or attitudes demonstrated to be precursors to or predictors of drug use or violence must also be considered.

In selecting effective programs most responsive to their needs, grantees are encouraged to review the breadth of available research and evaluation literature, and to replicate these programs in a manner consistent with their original design (i.e., fidelity to the model). Although this principle focuses on youth, recipients may chose to adopt programs that do not directly serve youth as part of their effort to prevent youth drug use and violence. For example, the objective needs assessment may suggest that recipients implement parent training or staff development activities. If recipients choose one of these programs that do not directly serve youth, they must still meet the requirements embodied in the SDFSCA and the Principles. (See Technical Assistance Manual for programs grounded in scientifically based research.)

*Specific schools with critical needs that are cited in the Needs Assessment section must have activities designed to address these problems.

GRANT APPLICATION

EVALUATING FOR RESULTS AND IMPLEMENTATION

Each recipient shall evaluate its programs periodically to assess progress toward achieving goals and objectives, and use evaluation results to improve and strengthen programs, and to refine goals and objectives as appropriate. The Principles of Effectiveness can be thought of as a circular process. Each step should build on the results from the prior step and that information must be used to develop plans for implementing the next step in this circular process. Principle 1 is assessing needs, Principle 2 is deciding on goals, and Principle 3 is implementing a program. Principle 4 requires recipients to determine how successful their activities have been in meeting established goals, and to use that evaluation information as part of a continuing improvement process. The first step of this process occurred in FY04 when you established Needs, Goals & Objectives for the three year plan. FY06 is the third and final year of the current grant cycle.

Grantees shall not continue to use SDFSCA funds to implement programs that cannot demonstrate positive outcomes in terms of reducing or preventing drug use, violence, or disruptive behavior among youth, or other behaviors or attitudes demonstrated to be precursors to or predictors of drug use or violence.

The FY05 Progress Report must be submitted with the FY06 grant application by June 1, 2005 to Mary Jane Kerwood, Coordinator, Safe and Drug-Free Schools Program. The FY05 Progress Report is completed by using the final column from the FY05 Grant’s “Goals, Objectives, and Activity Plans” for Alcohol, Drugs, Tobacco and Violence.

If an activity was not completed, please indicate why and address what will be done to complete the activity in the future.

Reminder – Be sure that the use of percentages or numbers in the “Activity Outcomes” matches the use of percentages or numbers in the “Criteria for Success.” Matching numbers and percentages is important for the FY05 Progress Report.
