We are excited that the national implementation of D.A.R.E.ís new keepiní it REAL (kiR) elementary curriculum will commence in early 2012. D.A.R.E. instructors having received training for the new kiR elementary curriculum have expressed an exceptionally positive response. D.A.R.E.ís kiR elementary curriculum will serve as an ideal companion to the evidence-based and applauded D.A.R.E. kir middle school curriculum. Deep appreciation is extended to Dr. Michael Hecht, Dr. Michelle Miller-Day, The Pennsylvania State University, and the many D.A.R.E. officers and educators who gave selflessly of their talent, time and resources to create the new curriculum.
Transition to the new kiR elementary curriculum: OFFICERS WHO HAVE NOT RECIEVED THE NEW kiR ELEMENTARY CURRICULUM WILL NOT BE ON THE ROSTERS TO ORDER THE WORKBOOKS OR ITEMS NEEDED TO PRESENT THE CURRICULUM
Police agencies and their partner school districts will have one year from the date of kiR student planner availability to complete transition to the new kiR curriculum. To ensure availability of workbooks for agencies planning to continue delivery of the existing D.A.R.E. elementary curriculum, not the kiR elementary curriculum, through the fall 2012 semester, orders for those workbooks must be placed no later than May 18, 2012.
