Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) is a curriculum taught in all four Hancock County school corporations. At this time, the program is taught at the 5th/6th grade level. A uniformed trained police officer teaches a 10 lesson program that deals with topic such as: decision-making, peer pressure, bullying, saying no to peers, and the dangers of drugs. The students work through a workbook provided by the local Hancock County D.A.R.E. program. At the completion of the program a graduation is held.
