D.A.R.E.: Drug Abuse Resistance Education
The Frederick County Sheriffs Office D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) Program began in the fall of 1988, in seven elementary schools in Frederick County, with one Deputy teaching a 17-week Curriculum in the fifth grade classrooms. These lessons, each lasting approximately 45 minutes, ranged in topics from Ways of Saying No, Peer Pressure, Self-Esteem, Media Influence on Youth, Assertiveness, Skits, as well as Role Models being brought in from the high schools, to answer concern the students might have going into the middle schools.
Today, the Frederick County D.A.R.E. curriculum is a 12-week program, addressing the importance of taking the time to make good choices, not only to drug use, but also to friends, who might try to talk them into things that could be wrong or dangerous. The fifth grade students get to role-play various situations with their classmates, and try to pick what might to be best way to respond to these situations.
