Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Gov’t, SEAs or LEAs. Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: Responses:—14,751. Burden Hours—6,992. Abstract: This study will examine the proportion of Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities grantees that are implementing research-based programs and practices that are found to be effective and the proportion of these programs that are implementing the research with a high degree of fidelity. Specifically the study will investigate the following two research questions: (1) What proportion of drug and/or violence prevention programs nationally, and in the SDFSC program, are implementing research-based drug and/or violence prevention programs and practices that scientific evidence has shown produce positive outcomes? (2) To what extent nationally, and in the SDFSC program, are drug and/or violence prevention programs that are implementing research-based programs and practices doing so with fidelity to the research on which they are based? To address these questions, this study is conducting a systematic review of research to identify effective programs and practices and will survey a nationally-representative sample of districts, schools, and Governors programs to assess the implementation quality of prevention programs and practices.
