Applicants are encouraged to select evidence-based program curricula from the approved list, which target elementary, middle, and high school students.

Grants awarded to a law enforcement agency under this section shall be used by the agency to pay for not more than fifty per cent of the amount of the salaries of law enforcement officers who conduct drug abuse resistance education programs in public schools. The Attorney General shall not use more than six percent of the amounts the Attorney General’s Office receives under division (F)(2)(e) of this section to pay the costs it incurs in administering the grant program established by division (F)(2)(e) of this section and in providing training and materials relating to drug abuse resistance education programs.

Per Ohio Revised Code Section 4511.191(F)(4), programs eligible for funding include:

Officers are expected to counsel groups and meet one-on-one with students regarding drug use prevention issues in accordance with the amount of time spent teaching the lesson plan.
    2. School Resource Officer Drug Use Prevention Programs: Drug Use Prevention Education programs presented by School Resource Officers.
      Agencies offering drug use prevention education programs by School Resource Officers are encouraged to select from the table of recommended evidence-based curricula (Table 1).

School Resource Officers who wish to instruct a drug use prevention program that is not on the approved curriculum list must submit additional information demonstrating the program’s effectiveness. Programs not on the approved curriculum list will be reviewed and approved at the discretion of the Ohio Attorney General’s Office. Search, seizure and investigative activities are not eligible for grant funding. In addition to conducting a drug use prevention program, School Resource Officers are expected to counsel groups and meet one-on-one with students regarding drug use prevention issues in accordance with the time spent teaching the lesson plan.

If awarded grant funding, agencies may be required to submit D.A.R.E. or S.R.O. training information for each peace officer funded.
