One of the most basic of goals within the Springboro Community is to provide a safe and nurturing atmosphere for the raising and education of our children. We recognize that our children are the future of our community.
The D.A.R.E. Program is designed to educate our children in the dangers of drugs and to give them the tools necessary to resist the temptations present in today's modern, yet often misguided society.
The D.A.R.E. Program began in Springboro in 1991, and hundreds of kids have successfully graduated from our D.A.R.E. Program.
By concentrating on students in the 2nd, 4th, and 6th grades, the D.A.R.E. Program attempts to build on the skills taught by parents and teachers in the area of judgment. The students are taught conflict management skills, decision making skills, self-esteem building, and community responsibility.
Most importantly, they are taught that each and every action one takes in life has consequences. Good decisions produce good results - bad decisions produce bad results.
