FOSTORIA, OH (Toledo News Now) -
The DARE program at Fostoria Schools could be on the
chopping block for next school year.
The DARE program was recently revived at the school
district, with January being the first time the program was seen since 2002, but police say there's not enough funding to keep
it going next year.
Fostoria Police have applied for grant money from the
Ohio Attorney General's Office to keep the program running. They're hoping to
get between $50-70,000. That would allow the program to continue, and both of
the current resource officers to remain working in the school system.
Police say the program is helping students talk with
their parents about the problems they're having in school.
"[It helps them] be willing to talk to their parents, or
talk to somebody, if they have problems identifying bullying in schools," said
Captain Patrick Brooks.
Captain Brooks also said the DARE program is critical to
helping students start a drug-free life.
The department will know about their funding status in
the next few months.
