Drug and Alcohol Prevention Program (DAAPP) Notice

What is the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act?

The Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (SDFSCA) requires institutions of higher education to establish programs that prevent violence in and around schools, address unlawful possession, use, or distribution of alcohol and illicit drugs, involve parents and communities, and coordinate with state and federal programs to foster safe and drug-free learning environments to promote student academic achievement.

Texas A&M University conducts a Biennial Review of our participation in the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act.
