We appreciate Operation UNITE staff spending the day with Rockcastle Middle School 7th graders.
On The Move is a drug education- 5 component program provided to school for free. They partner with the KY Army National Guard and target 7th and 10th grade. The Interactive Mobile Classroom students are educated about drugs and the effects in a relaxed, small group settings. Students are surveyed through a 40-minute power point presentation that provides immediate feedback. During the Simulated Impaired Driving Experience students utilize a battery-powered go-kart, controlled by a UNITE staff member, to simulate the effects of distraction and impairment from alcohol or other drugs on a motorist’s driving skills. The students also participate in a small group discussion about making the right decisions and the positive benefits from making good choices.
