  • information on evidence-informed alcohol and other drug classroom education
  • practical steps on responding to alcohol and other drug incidents
  • an audit to identify areas for improvement in your school’s approach to alcohol and other drugs
  • a template for developing a plan to improve your responses to alcohol and other drug issues
  • guidance for supporting young people and their families who are affected by alcohol and other drug use.
