The Delavan-Darien School District is initiating two preventive programs designed to make parents aware of the drug dangers their children face.

Superintendent Jill Sorbie said the initiation of the programs does not mean the district has a drug problem.

“It is not that the district has a huge drug problem,” she said. “It is about being responsible for our youth. It is about being proactive and not reactive.”

Assistant Police Chief Jim Hansen agreed.

“It is preventative,” he said. “It is not unique to Delavan or Darien. We want to keep it under control and make sure parents know what to look for.”

Sorbie said that is the key to both programs the district is implementing.

“The district has the responsibility to educate parents and the community on what kids have access to and how to keep them away from that,” Sorbie said.
