Arizona school bus decals promote substance abuse awareness

Posted on April 4, 2008

PRESCOTT, Ariz. — MATForce, the Yavapai County Substance Abuse Coalition, partnered with four area school districts to display signs on school buses to increase awareness of the effects of drug and alcohol abuse.

More than 170 school buses in the Prescott area are displaying the new signs, which coincide with MATForce’s April Substance Awareness Month campaign. MATForce is sponsoring the displays on Prescott, Humboldt, Mayer and Chino Valley school district buses.

"The eye-catching signage will deliver a variety of substance abuse messages designed for students, families and people of all ages," said Kevin Kapp, superintendent of the Prescott Unified School District. "We want to help remind families and caregivers to educate themselves and to talk with their children about the dangerous effects of substance abuse."

Students can see the signs as they enter and leave buses. The community will also see it as the buses travel the streets and highways of western Yavapai County.
