Chief Academic Officer, Mrs. Kris Devereaux
Dr. Nicole Fowler, ZCS Preventative Substance Abuse Task Force Member

Chief Academic Officer, Kris Devereaux, and ZCS Preventative Substance Abuse Task Force member, Dr. Nicole Fowler, asked the board to consider the implementation of the Preventure program which is aimed at reducing drug and alcohol abuse in high risk adolescents. They chose the Preventure program because it is research proven, recommended by the Surgeon General, and has strong alignment with the district’s Strong in Every Way initiative. The Preventure program will be funded by the Lilly Endowment Counseling Grant. The board unanimously approved the program.
