The Wm. S. Hart Union High School District will offer the first in a series of drug awareness seminars for parents and students 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 24, in the multipurpose room at Valencia High School.

The seminar is part of the district's Comprehensive Alcohol and Drug Reduction and Education (CADRE) program dealing with the issue of drug, steroid and alcohol use and the effects on the school community and families.

Tuesday's program will cover common drugs found in the local area and their effects on the human body, how parents can assist students in resisting peer influences regarding drug and alcohol use, and what parents should look for when drug and alcohol use is suspected.

Families who attend the seminar also will receive information on the CADRE voluntary random drug testing component of the program and how to enroll in this valuable tool to help keep Hart District students off drugs. The district currently is enrolling families to take part in the pilot testing program which will get underway this spring.

The CADRE program was developed by Dr. Darryl Adams, Hart District director of human resources, at the request of the district's Governing Board. The seminar is the first step in the vital education component of the program, directed toward students, parents and staff.
