Goal 7: Safe, Disciplined, and Alcohol- and Drug-Free Schools

By the year 2000, every school in the United States will be free of drugs, violence and the unauthorized presence of firearms and alcohol and will offer a disciplined environment conducive to learning.


  • Every school will implement a firm and fair policy on use, possession, and distribution of drugs and alcohol.

  • Parents, businesses, governmental and community organizations will work together to ensure the rights of students to study in a safe and secure environment that is free of drugs and crime, and that schools provide a healthy environment and are a safe haven for all children.

  • Every local educational agency will develop and implement a policy to ensure that all schools are free of violence and the unauthorized presence of weapons.

  • Every local educational agency will develop a sequential, comprehensive kindergarten through twelfth grade drug and alcohol prevention education program. Drug and alcohol curriculum should be taught as an integral part of sequential, comprehensive health education.

  • Community-based teams should be organized to provide students and teachers with needed support.

  • Every school should work to eliminate sexual harassment.
