New Workbook Request Information

Effective August 15, 2019 ALL workbook request will require two forms be completed, VA workbook order form  and the Statistical data form.  Once both forms are received and the order is approved, the workbooks will ship directly to your agency.  With this drop shipping method, accuracy of information on forms is vital.  The Virginia D.A.R.E. Training Center can’t guarantee the ability to supply ALL workbook needs for your agency.  We are limited by funding and workbook demand, at the same time trying to balance the needs of the State.   The preferred method of receiving completed forms is by email to mark.medford@dare.org.  Faxes are acceptable to 1.800.303.1905.  Additional workbooks can be purchased at D.A.R.E. Catalog.



Virginia SOL Correlation Guides for D.A.R.E.

The Virginia D.A.R.E. Training Center tasked one of our D.A.R.E. Educational Advisers, Bonnie Bazemore, to develop an updated Virginia SOL correlation guide for both elementary and middle school D.A.R.E. This exhausting job was complete in June of 2016. The VDTC is proud to release these documents for D.A.R.E. officers to share with their local school districts.
