  • Maggie is returning to the State House next week and leaving PAAC
  • Two schools took survey for grades 7th, 9th, 11th
  • Self reported and sent to Parent Student Institute to analyze the data to find those results that should be kicked out
  • Can compare to numbers from 2019
  • Core Measures
    • Past 30 day use of tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, RX drugs
    • Perception of risk using the above
    • Perception of parental disapproval
    • Perception of peer disapproval
  • Did you smoke/drink/use marijuana/prescription drug in past 30 days?
    • 3.6% cigarettes; 16% alcohol ; 7.7% marijuana; 1.7% prescription drugs
  • 12.5% using nicotine vaping
  • Teens think vaping is safer than cigarettes and don’t feel parental disapproval to stop
  • Perception of peer disapproval is 82.6% of RX 
  • Used nicotine vaping over three times the rate that they smoked cigarettes and felt vaping was less harmful
  • Wright State did a national comparison – with our local data compared to city’s similar to us
    • Our teen’s alcohol use is almost doubled the national average
  • Schools do have their results
