Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) is a school-based drug use prevention program taught by police officers in all 5th and 7th grade classes throughout Comal ISD. The primary goal of the DARE program is to teach effective peer resistance and refusal skills so that adolescents can say “no” to drugs and their friends who may want them to use drugs. The secondary goals of the program are to build students’ social skills and enhance their self-esteem as these are believed to be linked to adolescent drug use. 


Comal ISD partners with the Comal County Sheriff’s Office and Bulverde Police Department to provide this program.
