What is different about a Red Ribbon Certified School?

A Red Ribbon Certified School models prevention excellence by having:

  • Parents as partners to improve academic performance and reduce risky behaviors in their kids
  • Commitment from leadership (Principal, District School Superintendent, School Board, Teachers)
  • Open and frequent communication between parents, teachers and administration
  • Regular in-service training for all school personnel on prevention principles
  • Prevention efforts guided by best practices
  • Opportunities for all students to be part of the solution
  • Methods to inform, educate and involve business leaders, the broader community, and especially parents
  • Year-round Red Ribbon events to communicate norms and expectations, and the relationship of academic achievement to resilience
