Alcohol information for parents

Involving parents


Partnerships with parents are important when implementing drug education programs because parents are the primary and most enduring educators of their children. Parents need to know how drug education is taught as part of the curriculum and how drug education fits into the student welfare policy.

Parent and community participation and involvement in drug education can be enhanced by establishing and maintaining networks with local agencies.

There are many other ways in which schools can involve parents as partners in the education of their children.
