(MEDORA) - Three grades at Medora Junior-Senior High School will have a drug prevention education program integrated into their health class in the 2017-18 school year, and students also will benefit from an after-school program thanks to grants totaling $45,000 from the Indiana Department of Education.

The 1003(a) Tier II School Improvement Grant is intended to help support schools in the areas of educator retention, increased learning opportunities, family and community involvement, early learning initiatives and student supports.

The drug prevention education program, "Be Your Best You" will be offered in health classes to 7th, 8th and 10th graders.

An after-school program also will be offered three times a week for 12 weeks in which students will focus on self-awareness, life skills, character development and personal goal setting.
