The Athens and D.C. Everest Area school districts were among 87 districts in Wisconsin to receive grant funding for alcohol and other drug abuse projects.

Athens schools received $13,000 and D.C. Everest received $24,692 for programs that aim to reduce and prevent alcohol, tobacco and other drug use by students, according to a news release from the state Department of Public Instruction.

DPI distributed about $950,000 in competitive grants for AODA programs for the 2013-14 school year.

"Youth access to alcohol, tobacco and illegal drugs has always been exceptionally dangerous for the developing brain and body," State Superintendent Tony Evers said. "It's common sense to provide educational programming, funded from the penalty surcharge for traffic finds and forfeitures, to help our students avoid substance use and abuse that can impair their education."
