D.A.R.E. Responds to COVID-19 with New Tools & Creativity

Local D.A.R.E. Officers demonstrated amazing skills to be nimble and creative teaching lessons via Zoom, delivering lesson related materials to student’s homes, and conducting drive-by graduations.

COVID-19 presented D.A.R.E. America/International, as well as each individual local D.A.R.E. program, with unique and unprecedented challenges. With schools closures occurring in March, many D.A.R.E. classes had not completed their lessons.

As the fall semester approached, school districts and individual schools were implementing a variety of restricted teaching environments including remote, hybrid, and in-class instruction. And there were many districts which limited the total hours of “screen” time for students for only core curricula instruction.

Recognizing that D.A.R.E. Officers would need new tools to adjust to these conditions, D.A.R.E. America/International expanded its electronic elementary school student workbook platform to include the keepin’ it REAL middle school student workbook. Our team rebranded it D.A.R.E. Remote and launched a marketing campaign that led to its use by scores of school districts and D.A.R.E. Officers.
