Letter from Governor Kasich - Resources for Families

Governor Kasich addressed a letter to all superintendents on May 27, 2016 regarding a "deadly epidemic" and a "concern that too many of our young people are falling prey to drug abuse, addiction and overdose". The letter is a bi-partisan letter and provides two resources for school, staff, and parent to utilize. The first is StartTalking! with information at www.starttalking.ohio.gov and the second is GenerationRx with information at www.generationrx.org/take-action.  XCS encourages families to visit these resources and have conversations with children over the summer.
