Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD)
 
The Office of Student Discipline (OSD) is pleased to announce receipt of a $45,000 Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) grant from the Georgia Office of Highway Safety (GHOS). SADD Chapters are designed to address drinking and driving among teens in Fulton County High Schools during the 2013-2014 school and implement the following activities:

 

· Establish or Maintain a SADD Chapter

· Complete a Minimum of Two Safety Belt Checks

· Host Ghost-out, Crash Car Event, or Safe Prom and Graduation Activities

· Provide Leadership Training to SADD Chapter Members

· Support Drug Prevention Activities

 

Because car crashes remain the Number One cause of death for teens, drivers ages 15-19 have a higher rate of crashes, injuries and fatalities than adult and elderly drivers. In 2012, there were an estimated 156 crash deaths of drivers ages 15-20. That represents 13 percent of all traffic fatalities in Georgia. While that represents an overall decrease from 17 percent in 2007, Georgia is still projected to reach that 13 percent mark by the end of 2013.

 

This grant will enhance SADD chapters in Fulton County Schools with the idea that student input into the solution will help alleviate the problem of teen driver fatalities in Georgia.

 

The following Fulton County Schools have been awarded a $2,000 SADD grant:

 

Alpharetta High School Creekside High School
Banneker High School Johns Creek High School
Cambridge High School Langston Hughes High School
Centennial High School North Springs High School
Chattahoochee High School Northview High School
Creekside High School Roswell High School
Chattahoochee High School Tri-Cities High School
Westlake High School
