Although each school district's drug prevention program operates as a separate entity from the next one, managers might operate their programs more efficiently if information is discovered that could improve them During this study, the researcher would: 1. Identify major differences between the Newport News and the Hampton City Schools Drug Prevention Programs; 2. Determine by comparison if the two drug prevention programs are effective as used or can be improved; 3. Determine if there is a direct correlation between drug usage and a drop in grades; 4. Assess whether each drug prevention program is designed to prevent drug usage or reduce drug usage.
