Sunnyside, WASH.--The Sunnyside School District hopes to draw the line between teens and alcohol with a new community-wide grant.
The state is giving the school district more than $100,000 to pay for training, technical assistance and prevention services.
The school district said they're in the planning stages right now. They're looking to partner with law enforcement, health professionals and businesses to make a serious impact.
"We're doing a community survey," said Cathy Kelley, the Community Coalition Coordinator. "We have hard copies, we have web links. In fact, that information is going to be going out later this week or next week. We'll have everything put together to get that information out to the community."
Sunnyside is one of 35 communities participating in the statewide program.
The school district said their main goals are to reduce underage drinking, improve academic performance and reduce juvenile crime.
