    There is no fiscal cost of a drug awareness program as the current WVBE Health Education content standards and objectives include age appropriate 5-12 drug awareness and blood borne pathogen education. Select WVBE Wellness content and objective standards in PreK-4 address drug awareness and prevention. WVBE student success standards also address select awareness and prevention. The WVDHHR- has potential funding to support educational materials, supplemental resources and evidence-based programs as decided at the local level. School's currently have groups composed of staff, parents and the community that can assist in this cross-sector collaboration.
