Organized by CSD Administration and Decatur High PTSA
Monday, March 28 ● 7:00-8:15pm, DHS Performing Arts Center (NEW LOCATION)
- Dr. David Dude, CSD Superintendent
- Mike Booker, Decatur Police Chief
- Jessica Andrews-Wilson, Certified Prevention Specialist (and former Director of Georgia Teen Institute)
- Wrap Up Conversation facilitated by Eric Tumperi, DHS PTSA President
The findings are in and they show that Decatur students are drinking and using drugs at higher rates than in the past, and higher rates than peer schools and statewide averages. Couple that with several recent incidents of fighting, posting fights to social media, underage drinking, drinking and driving, drug use and cyber bullying, and it’s no wonder that many parents want us to discuss together and take action.
At this special meeting, Dr. Dude and Chief Booker will give some background on the current state of affairs, before turning to Jessica Andrews-Wilson, nationally known adolescent risk behavior specialist, who will guide us through actions we, and parents in particular, can take.
To ensure the conversation doesn’t end here, the meeting will end with some opportunities for CSD parents to step up in various ways to develop a concerted response to these risky behavior challenges.
While the focus is on DHS, Renfroe and FAVE, ALL current or potential City School of Decatur parents are welcome.
Please come and be part of this effort.
