We have Middle School and High School planners.
We are completely out of Elementary planners. We still have a large supply of "keepin' it Real" Middle School planners in stock and ready for distribution. I also have about 1,500 High School workbooks in stock. Call before you come up to make sure I'm here. If you are in need of the new "keepin' it Real" Elementary planners, you will need to order them from DARE Catalog.
DARE America still asks me to provide them with census data annually, so I still need for you to send me census forms when you teach, even if you buy your books from DARE Catalog. You can complete the census forms online and email them to me.

Solution to keepin' it Real Elementary DVD problem
If you are still having problems getting the videos to play in the Revised Elementary keepin’ it Real PowerPoint presentations, read the following Microsoft support page.
It looks like installing the latest PowerPoint viewer will resolve the issue if you do not have PowerPoint 2007 or later.
If you have PowerPoint 2007, click on the Office Button in the upper left corner of PowerPoint and select “PowerPoint Options” at the bottom of the drop down box. On the left side, click on “Resources” and look at the last line on the right. It should say something like, “Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 (some numbers) SP3 MSO (more numbers). If there is no SP# or it is less than SP2, then you need to upgrade to PowerPoint 2007, Service Pack 2 (SP2) or later. Information on the upgrade is located at: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949585
If you have PowerPoint 2010 or later, you should have no problems.
Hope this helps. Let me know if it does.

NEW YOUTH STATE REP FOR D.A.R.E. - Emily Sledd, daughter of Hart and Patty Sledd, has been selected as Kentucky’s representative for the D.A.R.E. Youth Advisory Board. She will attend local D.A.R.E. graduations, classes and the state D.A.R.E. convention. Emily is a student at Bourbon County Middle School and is active in various school activities including peer leaders, the middle school play and the marching band. This year millions of school children around the world will benefit from D.A.R.E.

D.A.R.E. was founded in 1983 in Los Angeles and has proven so successful that it is now being implemented in 75 percent of our nations’ school districts and in more than 43 countries around the world.
