OHS Prevention Program

Greetings Parents, Students, and Community Members,
 
My name is Lesa Eiffert and I am the Student Assistance Professional employed by the North Central Educational Service District responsible for implementing and coordinating the Project Success prevention and education activities.  I implement the Project Success program for Omak Middle School and Omak High School.  The goals of the Project Success program are to prevent and reduce alcohol, tobacco and other drug use and to improve school performance.  To accomplish these goals, students have the opportunity to participate in classroom discussion and small group and individual meetings regarding perceptions about substance use and learn skills to identify and resist social and situational pressures to use substances.  Project Success also has a student led TEA (Teaching Everyone Awareness) Club that works to prevent substance use and promote healthy behaviors and safety.  
 
Please contact me if you are wanting assistance regarding your student or want to learn more about the services that I provide.
