Va To Recognize Substance Abuse Prevention Efforts

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Gov. Bob McDonnell is encouraging all school divisions in Virginia to participate in a new state program that will recognize substance abuse prevention efforts.
    
McDonnell announced the program Thursday. It's part of an initiative called Governor's Substance Abuse Awareness Vital for Virginia Youth, or SAAVY.
    
The program will recognize the prevention efforts of school divisions and community partners.
    
McDonnell says the goal is to promote best practices and community responsiveness.
    
March 29 is the deadline for schools and community partners to apply for designation as a governor's recognized program.
