The National Network was formed in 1996, when it became clear that a unified, organized voice was needed to enhance communication between federal, state and local agencies that work on behalf of the Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities (SDFSC) Education Program. As an advocacy group, the National Network is particularly concerned with providing its members with programmatic resources such as technical assistance concerning the program and networking opportunities.
Network membership is made up of state-level administrators from the Governor’s Office and the State Education Agency in each state; the Comprehensive Technical Assistance Centers located regionally throughout the country; a Local Education Agency representative from each state; representatives from associate national, state and local agencies; and other interested parties who support the mission of the Network (i.e., parents and retired Network members).
