AlcoholEdu for Upper School is a digital course that takes a public healthy approach to preventing alcohol abuse, incorporating evidence-based prevention methods to create a highly engaging user experience. It is designed to help reduce negative consequences associated with underage drinking. It is comprised of five modules that cover key concepts around leveraging personal values and goals, resisting peer pressure, and stepping in when students see someone who may be in trouble.

Teachers will be using the TI 83/84. There are various editions - the Silver, Silver Plus, etc., but if it starts with TI 83 or 84, your student will be able to follow along with the specific instruction given in class. Previously-used calculators can be found online for less than the cost of a new one. You are welcome to use a different type of graphing calculator, however training on that tool will be dependent on the student. It is also important that each student has a physical calculator. Phone applications or internet downloads for the computer will not be permitted.

If there is not a photo on file for your student, we will take their picture during orientation or the first day of school, and then the badge will be printed that day.
