Safe and Drug Free Schools and Communities Program
MISD offers a comprehensive Safe and Drug Free Schools and Communities Program based on the Principles of Effectiveness. The purpose of the program is to support comprehensive drug use prevention and violence prevention programs that address the four goals below:
1. prevent violence in and around schools;
2. prevent the illegal use of alcohol, tobacco, and drugs;
3. involve parents and communities; and
4. coordinate with related federal, state and community efforts and resources to foster safe and drug-free schools and communities.
The Mission of Safe and Drug Free Schools is to create safe schools, provide drug abuse and violence prevention, thereby ensuring the health and well being of students and promoting development of good character and citizenship. Midlothian ISD is committed to this mission and has adopted several programs to ensure that the needs of our students, families, and staff are supported.
It is our hope that our students and families will partner with us in maintaining a safe and drug free environment at Midlothian ISD.
Red Ribbon Week
Each Campus participates in Red Ribbon Week activities which are aimed at educating out students on the dangers of drug use and encouraging them to remain drug free for life.
The Life Skills program is integrated into the curriculum for students in grades 6th-8th. Life Skills is a program based on scientifically supported research that applies proven prevention strategies used to avert or reduce drug use and violence.
Please see the MISD Bully Prevention webpage for information regarding programs aimed at bullying prevention.
