2012 Texas School Survey of Drug and Alcohol Use

Introduction The Texas School Survey of Drug and Alcohol Use is sponsored by the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and implemented by the Public Policy Research Institute (PPRI) at Texas A&M University. The Texas School Survey project is conducted in two parts. First, a statewide survey is administered every two years in a sample of districts throughout the state. The statewide survey helps inform policymakers about the extent and nature of the substance use problem in Texas schools. It also gives districts conducting local surveys a standard of comparison for interpreting their own drug and alcohol survey findings. The second component of the Texas School Survey makes drug and alcohol surveys available for administration in individual school districts. The Texas School Survey is offered annually to every school district in the state. DSHS partially supports these district-level administrations by absorbing the cost of instrument development, funding the preparation of an executive summary of the local results, and providing state survey data as a basis for interpreting local findings. A local administration of the Texas School Survey was conducted in your school district during the spring of 2012. Your local survey results are presented in this report. Findings from the statewide assessment, which was conducted in the spring of 2012, are also presented in the report. Organization of the Report The report is divided into three major sections. Part I, District Results, contains a set of tables and margins summarizing the secondary and (if applicable) elementary survey data for your district. Part II, State Results, will contain a complete set of tables and margins presenting state results in a format similar to your local report. Part III, Executive Summary, will contain a customized written synopsis of the local survey results and a complete set of corresponding figures comparing those local results to the state survey data. Prior to presenting the results, there are a number of important points that should be considered with regard to the data cited in this report. These issues relate both to the 2012 statewide survey as well as to the district-level data from this year. This section briefly presents some basic information regarding the development of the report and the limitations of the data. Background on Local Survey Administration The Texas School Survey is offered for students in grades four through twelve. Two versions of the survey instrument have been developed to accommodate both older and younger students. Each school district had the ability to administer either an online version of the survey via a secure website, or the traditional paper-pencil administration. School districts selected which method of administration they preferred when signing up for the survey. Districts were asked to limit survey administration to one of a fixed set of grade combinations. Below are brief descriptions of the elementary and secondary survey instruments and a review of acceptable grade combinations.

The Texas School Survey Instrument Two versions of the Texas School Survey are available. The first, a six-page questionnaire, is designed for secondary students in grades seven through twelve. The secondary survey instrument explores usage patterns of illicit drugs including tobacco and alcohol products, inhalants, marijuana, powdered cocaine, crack, hallucinogens, uppers, downers, Rohypnol, DXM, steroids, ecstasy, and heroin. Other questions pertain to behavioral and demographic correlates of substance use, problems associated with substance use, and sources of information about help for substance-related problems. A streamlined, three-page instrument is available for students in grades four through six. The questions in the elementary survey are similar to those found in the secondary version, but they have been adapted to be more easily understood by younger respondents (i.e., the language has been simplified wherever possible, students have been asked about fewer drug alternatives, and some complex questions have been omitted). Standard Grade Combinations In order to make state and local comparisons of substance use across all grades, both the state and local aggregate percentages must be based upon the same combinations of grades. Otherwise, state and local data is comparable by individual grade, but overall scores can not be compared directly. Because the 2012 state survey data was run in only a limited number of grade combinations, districts were encouraged to administer their local surveys in the following grade groupings: Elementary 4 through 6 4 through 5 Secondary 7 through 12 9 through 12 8, 10, and 12

If your district did not survey one of the above grade combinations, be aware that you can only compare your district results to the state data by individual grade. Where districts chose to do other combinations of grades, no comparable overall percentages for the state data are available. This will be an especially critical issue for small districts who only receive aggregate data. Limitations of the Data A number of subtle factors, such as sampling error and the limitations of self-reported data, can have a major bearing on the meaning and/or conclusions of the data. In addition, an awareness of the precise population to which findings can be generalized is also valuable because knowing who was not included in the survey can be as important as knowing who was included. In the following

paragraphs, some of the most significant caveats relating to both the statewide and local findings are discussed. Survey Population In generalizing the results of the state and local surveys, it should be remembered that the data were collected in public schools. Neither private school students nor drop-outs were sampled though both represent significant components of the youthful population of Texas. These limitations should be kept in mind when considering the implications of the data. The findings do, however, represent reasonable estimates of drug use among the public school population of Texas and offer a suitable basis of comparison for public school districts. Self-Reported Data The drug and alcohol use data are entirely based on self-reported information. While a number of studies have established the usefulness of self-reported information for estimating the incidence and prevalence of drug use, the validity of these data ultimately depends on the truthfulness, recall, and comprehension of respondents. This study is carefully designed to minimize the impact of these potential sources of error. For example, students who report impossibly high levels of substance use or use of non-existent drugs are eliminated from the analysis. Further, differences in recall or comprehension are assumed to be constant across both the state and local survey samples. Any reporting bias in the data should therefore be approximately equal in both assessments, and comparisons between district and state data should be valid. Nonetheless, the limitations of selfreported information should be considered when drawing conclusions about the data. Sampling Error The 2012 statewide survey data is based on a sample of Texas secondary and elementary students. Because a sample rather than the entire population of students was surveyed, a certain amount of error is introduced when generalizing findings from the sample to the population. To gauge the size of this error, confidence intervals for all estimates are ascertained. In general, however, small differences of a few percentage points are usually not statistically meaningful. Attention should be focused on large differences of five percentage points or more. Survey Protocols and Administration Finally, the accuracy of the data is dependent upon whether school staff followed Texas School Survey protocols for the sampling of students. Analytic Guidelines In processing the drug and alcohol survey data, there are a number of analytic issues that should be addressed. These include questions such as how to identify students who are exaggerating their drug or alcohol use, how best to calculate average substance use figures, how to handle surveys from

students in grades that are not technically being surveyed, and how to classify data for students who fail to report their grade level. This section will review some rules established to deal with these matters. Handling of Exaggerators As discussed above, the survey data presented herein is based entirely upon a respondents description of his or her own behavior. It is inevitable that some students will under- or over-report their use of drugs or alcohol. To the extent possible, an attempt is made to identify and eliminate data from those respondents. Two checks have been incorporated into the data analysis program to identify exaggerators. First, data from students claiming to have used "Damaxil," a non-existent drug, is considered suspect and dropped from the analyses. Second, students claiming impossibly high levels of drug or alcohol use are also dropped from the analyses. Unbelievably high substance use among secondary students is based on the following criteria: (1) students report in that they have consumed two or more alcoholic beverages every day five or more times; (2) students report that they have consumed three or more alcoholic beverages every day; or (3) students report that they have used three or more illicit drugs (other than tobacco, alcohol, inhalants, marijuana, or steroids) on a daily basis. Elementary students are considered exaggerators, and are excluded, if they indicated that they have used five or more substances 11 or more times in either their lifetimes or during the past school year. Weighted Aggregate Data In many districts, the percentage of all enrolled students that actually take the survey varies substantially by grade. Though patterns are different for each district, typically a larger proportion of younger students complete the survey compared to their older peers. If a simple average is taken when calculating overall levels of use, older students may not be represented in proportion to their numbers. Since these are the very students most likely to use drugs or alcohol, their underrepresentation in the aggregate scores results in artificially lower overall levels of substance use. To achieve more representative percentages when calculating overall or aggregate levels of substance use, a "weighted average" procedure is used. Prior to calculating the averages, scores for each grade surveyed are weighted by the total enrollment for that grade. By weighting averages by actual enrollment, over- or under-sampling in aggregate scores is partially alleviated. Surveys from "Out-of-Range" Grades Occasionally, students from a grade that is not technically being surveyed are included in the district sample. This is primarily a problem where the survey is administered in a non-contiguous grade combination (e.g., 8, 10, and 12). In these instances, the final sample often contains a few students who are in "out of range" grade levels. Generally, data for these students is not thrown out. Rather, it is re-coded and included with the next contiguous grade level. A conservative approach is used whereby younger students can be grouped with their older peers, but older students can not be re-

coded to a lower grade. This prevents artificially high levels of reported substance use in lower grades. There are two cases in which the "out-of-range" data is dropped from the analyses rather than being re-coded: (1) if there is no contiguous higher grade with which to combine the data; and (2) if the number of respondents in "out-of-range" students is greater than ten percent of the grade with which they are being grouped. This latter measure is designed to prevent a large number of "out of range" grades from obscuring the true grade-level values. Surveys in Which No Grade Level Was Reported When students failed to report their grade level, it is not possible to determine unequivocally with what grade these students' data should be analyzed. Where grade level is missing, students' data are retained in the sample and an estimate of grade is made based on his or her age. Students that are at age level for beginning a grade are included with that grade. If both grade and age are missing, the data are dropped from the analyses. Overview of the Data The Texas School Survey findings for your school district are summarized in this section. Survey findings are presented in three formats: figures, tables, and margins. Figures portray both state and local survey results in a "side-by-side" format, allowing for direct comparisons to be made. There are a total of six elementary and thirteen secondary figures, although not all of these can be produced for every school district. All of the figures that can be generated for your district have been produced. Two sets of primary and/or secondary tables are available. The first set, the General Substance Tables, are divided into five groupings---tobacco, alcohol, illicit drugs, inhalants, and miscellaneous. In each of these groupings are tables that illustrate general information about substance use patterns in the district and include prevalence of use, frequency of use, and age of first use. In addition, these tables highlight certain perceptions, attitudes and, behaviors from the data such as perceived availability and peer use of various substances, parental attitudes, attending class or operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and the use of intoxicants at parties. The second set, Prevalence Tables, contains fourteen tables showing the percentage of students who have used specific drugs or alcohol in the past month, past school year, and during their lifetimes. All tables are available for each participating district. Tables showing the same data for the state are also provided. Please note that the percentages listed under the School Year heading include the Past Month percentages. Additional data are presented in the margins, which contain the raw percentages of students who gave each response option for all questions. Keep in mind that if your district under-sampled a particular grade(s), your overall percentages will represent "weighted averages." As a result, the raw percentages presented in your margins may reflect weighted counts rather than actual raw counts.

Standards of Data Presentation A wide variety of school districts took part in the Texas School Survey. In order to accommodate the diversity of participants, guidelines for organizing and presenting the data were established. These include standards for handling data from small and mid-sized districts and for determining which tables and figures should be produced for each. These guidelines are reviewed below. Data Aggregation In some districts, too few students are surveyed to allow for reliable grade-level analyses to be performed. Where this occurs, data from several grades are grouped together. Grade groupings are established so as to (1) maximize the number of valid between-group comparisons possible and (2) protect students' confidentiality. One of three possible data presentation formats is selected for each district, depending on the number of students per grade. In districts where the number of students per grade varies widely, a format is selected based on the size of the majority of grades surveyed. However, if one or more grades fall below a total of thirty students, the next lower level of aggregation is automatically selected. The guidelines used for data aggregation are as follows: Secondary Small: When there are fewer than thirty students per grade, a single percentage is shown representing all students. When there are thirty to ninety students per grade, percentages are aggregated into grade groupings (e.g., combining grades 7 and 8 and grades 9 - 12). When there are more than ninety students per grade, separate percentages are shown for each grade level surveyed. Elementary Small: When there are fewer than sixty students per grade, a single percentage is shown for all students. When there are more than sixty students per grade, separate percentages are shown for each grade level surveyed.

Availability of Graphics

According to the data aggregation rules outlined above, graphics illustrating data by grade can not be produced for districts surveying fewer than thirty students per grade. As a consequence, figures that show grade-level breakdowns are omitted from both the elementary and secondary versions of reports for small districts. With these exceptions, all other figures and tables are produced for every district regardless of size. Conventions Used in Data Presentation Throughout the report, a number of conventions were adopted to maintain consistency in reporting. A common terminology is employed and a standard set of symbols is used in each table and figure. These terms and symbols are described in the following paragraphs, beginning with a set of general definitions and followed by a discussion of specific conventions used in tables and margins. Definitions There are several terms used throughout the report that, though seemingly straightforward, may have some bearing on how the data is understood and interpreted. These definitions are outlined below. Alcohol. When the category "Alcohol" appears in a figure or table, it represents the combined use of beer, wine, wine coolers, and liquor. Each of these alcoholic substances may be referenced individually, as well. Cocaine or Crack. This reference is found only in the prevalence tables (Tables B1-B14). It refers to students that report using either cocaine or crack, or both cocaine and crack. Since there is some overlap between students who have used cocaine and those who have used crack, the percentages of respondents in the "Cocaine or Crack" category should not be a simple sum of percentages in the individual "Cocaine" and "Crack" categories. It should, however, be at least as great as the larger of the two individual categories. Illicit Drugs. These are defined as controlled substances and include marijuana, powdered cocaine, crack, uppers, downers, Rohypnol, hallucinogens, ecstasy, heroin, and methamphetamine. Inhalants. The overall inhalant use percentages presented in the prevalence tables have been adjusted to reflect reported use of both specific inhalants and inhalant use generally. Such adjustments are necessary because some students respond in the positive to specific use (i.e., spray paint, correction fluid, magic markers, gasoline, helium, Freon, glue, paint thinner, other sprays, or other inhalants) without responding in the positive to generic use (i.e., "How many times have you used inhalants?"), while others respond in the positive to generic use but not to the use of specific inhalants. Marijuana Only. This reference is found only in the prevalence tables (Tables B1-B14). It refers to students who report using marijuana but no other illicit substances. The reference to "Marijuana," in contrast, includes all students using that substance regardless of whether they used other substances or not.

Prevalence. The percentage of students who report having used a substance or substances. Tobacco. The category "tobacco" includes the combined use of cigarettes and smokeless tobacco. Conventional Symbols and Format In addition to figures, there are two types of tables in which data may be presented. These include general substance use tables (Tables T1-T7, A1-A15, D1-D17, I1-I9, X1-X5) and prevalence tables (Tables B1-B14). Data is also available in its raw form in the margins. What follows are several conventions of data presentation that apply chiefly to tables and margins. The Meaning of an Asterisk (*) in Tables. When an asterisk appears in a table, not in the Executive Summary (see below), in place of a percentage, it typically means that fewer than ten students responded to that item. Asterisks may also appear if data is not available for a district. This would be the case, for instance, if a district does not survey all the grades in one of the standard acceptable grade combinations (see "Standard Grade Combinations" in the previous section). The Meaning of an Asterisk (*) in the Executive Summary (Part III). When an asterisk appears alongside a percentage in the Executive Summary component of the report, it means that the data so marked are estimated to be statistically significant at the .01 level from the comparable data for the state as a whole. This means that in only one of a hundred samples would a difference this large have occurred when there was no difference between the district and state data. Differences in very small districts will seldom be statistically significant due to the small number of cases. Differences that are not marked may be important, but should be treated with more caution than those that are so marked. Never Used/Ever Used Notations. In all prevalence tables, a standard approach is used for presenting incidence and prevalence information. An "Ever Used" category shows the total percentage of students who say they have used a substance at all, regardless of when or how many times. A "Never Used" category shows the total percentage of students who have never used a substance. The percentages shown in the "Ever Used" and "Never Used" categories always sum to one hundred percent. Additional columns then provide further information about those students who say they have "Ever Used" the substance. This includes information such as when or how often use occurred. These additional columns, when considered together, do not sum to the total percentage of students in the "Ever Used" category in the secondary reports due to the inclusion of the Past Month percentage within the School Year percentage (see discussion above). Margins. The raw percentage of students who responded to each survey item as found in the tables that comprise the final section of each report. Frequency and percent are shown for each individual response option. The frequency shows the absolute number of students who gave the indicated response. The percent is the frequency converted into a percentage of all students who answered the

question. Again, bear in mind that if your district under-sampled a particular grade(s), your overall percentages will represent "weighted averages." As a result, the raw percentages presented in your margins may reflect weighted counts rather than actual raw counts. Surveys excluded from analyses as exaggerators are not included in the margins.

Texas School Survey of Drug and Alcohol Use

Introduction

The Texas School Survey is an annual collection of self-reported tobacco, alcohol, inhalant, and substance use data from among elementary and/or secondary students in individual districts throughout the state of Texas. The survey, conducted by the Public Policy Research Institute (PPRI) in conjunction with the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), is also administered every other year to a representative sample of Texas students in grades 4 through 6 and grades 7 through 12. Data from the statewide sampling, administered in the spring of 2012, are incorporated into an over-time database maintained by DSHS to track trends in substance use so that policymakers at the state level have up-to-date information upon which to base decisions and establish prevention strategies. These data also serve as an overall standard of comparison for use by those at the district level to interpret and act upon local survey ndings in a similar way. The executive summary begins with a section containing a general demographic overview of those who took the survey in the participating district, followed by sections dealing with the various substances covered by the surveytobacco, alcohol, inhalants, and illicit drugs. The next section explores selected characteristics associated with substance use in the district. The summary concludes with a section on where students gain knowledge about drugs and alcohol and to whom they might turn if they thought they were having a problem. For a contextual viewpoint, each section dealing with substance use will begin with a brief timeline of the statewide trends over the last two and a half decades. The data are subsequently analyzed using environmental and behavioral factors. Items that are generally recognized as contributing to the environment in which substance use is most likely to occur include availability, peer use and parental attitudes. Included in the behavioral category are activities such as binge drinking (the consumption of ve or more alcoholic beverages at one time), attending class drunk or stoned, use of alcohol or illicit drugs at parties, or operating a motor vehicle while under the inuence of alcohol or drugs.

Texas School Survey of Drug and Alcohol Use As for the actual, self-reported use of each substance, it is important to note the frequency of such use. Is it experimental, a once-in-a-lifetime act or is it casual use, a once-in-a-while behavior? Alternatively, is it regular use; a monthly, weekly, orin the case of tobacco products in particulara daily habit? Further, data are used to dierentiate between those who smoke cigarettes from those who use a smokeless tobacco product, those who drink beer from those who drink wine coolers, those who sni correction uid from those who sni glue, and those who smoke marijuana from those who snort powdered cocaine. Some nal points should be noted about the data. First, due to the differences in rounding procedures, there may be slight discrepancies between the percentages referred to in the tables and those reected in the executive summary and in the corresponding gures. Second, due to the small number of students surveyed in this district, no between-grade comparisons can be made. Finally, some data in this report are marked with an asterisk. Data so marked are estimated to be statistically signicant at the .01 level from the comparable data for the state as a whole. This means that in only one of a hundred samples would a dierence this large have occurred when there was no dierence between the district and state data. Dierences in very small districts will seldom be statistically signicant due to the small number of cases. Dierences that are not marked may be important, but should be treated with more caution than those that are statistically signicant. The percentages referred to in the executive summary that follows were taken from the tables found in Part I: District Survey Results.

Texas School Survey of Drug and Alcohol Use

Demographic Overview

In the spring of 2012, the Texas School Survey was administered to students in grades 7 through 12 in the Marfa Independent School District. Texas School Survey protocols, formulated to ensure that the data used in this analysis has an acceptable probability of error, called for the district to administer the survey to a predetermined, class-specic sampling of secondary students. In addition, data accuracy is dependent on the school sta administering the survey using established protocols. A total of 132 students completed the questionnaire. Of that number, 3 surveys were excluded from analysis because students did not indicate their grade or age, or because they were identied as exaggerators (i.e., claimed to have used a non-existent drug or reported overly excessive drug use). The nal number of surveys included in the overall district analysis was 129, consisting of: 16 percent 7th graders, 16 percent 8th graders, 17 percent 9th graders, 11 percent 10th graders, 21 percent 11th graders, 19 percent 12th graders; 55 percent male and 45 percent female students; An ethnic breakdown that is 16 percent White, 2 percent AfricanAmerican, 69 percent Mexican-American, 2 percent Native American, 10 percent other; 47 percent say that they live in a two-parent home, and 79 percent report they have lived in the district for three or more years; 29 percent say their parent(s) are college graduates, and 61 percent indicate that they qualify for free/reduced lunches at school.

Texas School Survey of Drug and Alcohol Use

Tobacco

General tobacco use includes both cigarettes and smokeless tobacco products.

3.1

Statewide Overview

Well over half of secondary students statewide reported experimental use of tobacco products throughout the 1990s. In 2000, however, the number of these students who reported such use declined slightly (51 percent). This downward trend continued through the 2002 (45 percent), 2004 (39 percent), 2006 (35 percent), 2008 (32 percent), and 2010 (30 percent) statewide assessments. The prevalence of those secondary students reporting past-month general tobacco use, which had been increasing through 1996, leveled o in 1998, and began a steady, incremental decline in the 2000 (22 percent), 2002 (18 percent), 2004 (17 percent), 2006 (15 percent), 2008 (13 percent), and 2010 (12 percent) statewide surveys. In the most recent statewide assessment in 2012, tobacco use fell further with lifetime tobacco use at 28 percent and past-month use at 11 percent.

3.2

Environment

Fifty-two percent of Marfa ISD students reported that cigarettes are somewhat or very easy to get (47 percent statewide), while 16* percent said most or all of their close friends smoke cigarettes (7 percent statewide). Thirty-ve percent of Marfa ISD students indicated that smokeless tobacco products are somewhat or very easy to get (32 percent statewide), and 2 percent said most or all of their close friends use smokeless tobacco (4 percent statewide). Students were asked about parental attitudes toward the use of cigarettes by kids your age. A total of 82 percent of Marfa ISD students said their parents strongly or mildly disapprove of kids smoking (85 percent statewide), while 9 percent said their parents neither approve nor disapprove (6 percent statewide), and 8 percent of district students said they dont know how their parents feel about kids their age smoking cigarettes (7 percent statewide). Forty-two* percent of Marfa ISD students believe that tobacco use is very dangerous (57 percent statewide) (Fig. 3) 17

Use

Thirty-seven percent of Marfa ISD students reported general tobacco use at least once during their lifetimes (28 percent statewide) (Fig. 1-A). Eighteen percent of Marfa ISD students said they had used a tobacco product during the past month (11 percent statewide) (Fig. 1-B). Thirty-ve percent of Marfa ISD students reported smoking cigarettes at least once during their lifetimes (26 percent statewide), while 16 percent said they had smoked cigarettes during the past month (10 percent statewide), and 5 percent reported smoking cigarettes on a daily basis (2 percent statewide).

Alcohol

Alcohol is the most widely used substance among students statewide and in Marfa ISD.

4.1

Statewide Overview

As the 1990s began, 81 percent of secondary students statewide reported experimental alcohol use and over the decade that followed, the number of these students reporting such use decreased in each successive statewide assessment. This downward trend in lifetime alcohol use leveled o at 71 percent in the 2000 and 2002 statewide assessments, but picked up again in the 2004 (68 percent), 2006 (66 percent), 2008 (63 percent) and 2010 (62 percent) statewide data. On the other hand, past-month alcohol use among secondary students statewide has been more varied throughout the same period, beginning with 43 percent of these students in 1990, dropping to 37 percent in 1992, increasing to 39 percent in 1994, staying constant in 1996 and 1998 at 38 percent, and decreasing to 36 percent in 2000, 35 percent in 2002, 33 percent in 2004, 32 percent in 2006, 30 percent in 2008 and 29 percent in 2010. In the most recent statewide assessment in 2012, the downward trend continued with lifetime alcohol use decreasing to 58 percent and past month alcohol use falling to 25 percent.

4.2

Environment

Thirty-ve percent of district students reported most or all of their close friends drink alcohol (25 percent statewide), and 53 percent said alcohol (beer, wine coolers, wine, and liquor) was somewhat easy or very easy to obtain (58 percent statewide). Students who said they consume alcohol were asked where they obtained it all or most of the time. Thirty-four percent of district students said they obtain alcohol at parties (26 percent statewide), while 26 percent responded that they get it from friends (19 percent statewide), and 5 percent reported they get alcohol from the store (6 percent statewide).

Illicit and Licit Substances

Illicit drugs are dened as controlled substances and include marijuana, cocaine (powdered form and crack), uppers (stimulants), downers (narcotics), Rohypnol, hallucinogens, ecstasy, and heroin. Licit substances are those legally purchased either over-the-counter (DMX or Coricidin) or via a physicians prescription (Codeine, Oxycontin, Vicodin or Valium).

5.1

Statewide Overview

Just under a quarter of secondary students statewide in 1992 reported experimental use of an illegal drug at some point in their lives (22 percent), and 10 percent said they had used an illegal substance during the previous month. These prevalence rates began to climbthe experimental use rate by 6 percent (to 28 percent) and the rise of the past-month use rate (to 14 percent)beginning with the 1994 statewide assessment. By 1998, experimental use of illicit substances had peaked at 36 percent; however, pastmonth use of an illicit substance actually decreased one percentage point from its peak at 18 percent in 1996. This was followed two years later by declines in illicit drug use both in the lifetime (34 percent) and past-month (15 percent) categories. There was no change in 2002. A new downward trend for both the experimental (32 percent) and past-month (14 percent) uses were detected in 2004, continued in 2006 (28 percent for lifetime and 13 percent for past-month uses), and in 2008 (26 percent for lifetime and 12 percent for past-month uses). In 2010, a reverse in trend was detected with lifetime illicit drug use increasing to 28 percent, and past month illicit drug use increasing to 13 percent. In the most recent statewide assessment in 2012, lifetime illicit drug use decreased again to 27 percent and past month illicit drug use decreased to 12 percent. Marijuana use by those who also report using other illicit drugs appears to have mirrored the trends for illicit drug use in general over the last decade. Such use also declined in the 2004 statewide assessment to 30 percent for those who said they had done so at least one time and 13 percent who reported having done so in the past month. This downward trend continued in 2006 (26 percent for lifetime and 11 percent for past-month uses), and in 2008 (25 percent for lifetime and 10 percent for past-month uses). In 2010, a reverse in trend was detected with lifetime marijuana use rising to 26 per25

Texas School Survey of Drug and Alcohol Use cent, and past month marijuana use increasing to 11 percent. In the most recent statewide assessment in 2012, the prevalence of marijuana use stayed steady (26 percent for lifetime use, 11 percent for past month use).

5.2

Environment

Students were asked how available they believed certain substances were to obtain. Thirty-one percent of Marfa ISD students said marijuana was somewhat or very easy to obtain (38 percent statewide); 2* percent indicated that powdered cocaine was easily accessible (14 percent statewide) and 3* percent indicated that ecstasy was easily accessible (16 percent statewide). One* percent of district students said they believed heroin was somewhat or very easy to obtain (8 percent statewide). With regard to the question of the eects of peer inuence on substance use, 20 percent of Marfa ISD students reported most or all of their close friends smoke marijuana (19 percent statewide). And when asked about parental attitudes toward marijuana use, Marfa ISD students reported a disapproval rate of 87 percent (86 percent statewide). Six percent of district students said they dont know how their parents feel about kids their age using marijuana (6 percent statewide), while 5 percent said their parents neither approve nor disapprove (5 percent statewide) (Fig. 5-B) Fifty-four percent of Marfa ISD students believe that marijuana use is very dangerous (58 percent statewide) (See Figure 3). As for how Marfa ISD students viewed the risks associated with the use of certain other illicit substances, 79 percent feel that use of ecstasy is very dangerous (78 percent statewide), 84 percent believe that powdered cocaine use is very dangerous (85 percent statewide), 85 percent feel that the use of crack is very dangerous (87 percent statewide), and 86 percent believe that heroin is very dangerous (87 percent statewide).

Inhalants

In general, inhalants are common, licit substances (paints, thinners, correction uid, glue, etc.) which, when snied, hued, or inhaled, produce an intoxicating eect.

6.1

Statewide Overview

Nearly a quarter of secondary students statewide indicated they had experimented with an inhalant substance in the 1992 assessment. The number of these students reporting such use had decreased to 19 percent in 1994 and 1996, but began to increase in 1998 (22 percent). Experimental inhalant use has been declining in the three assessments conducted in the new century19 percent in 2000, 18 percent in 2002, and 17 percent in 2004. This downward trend in experimental use appears to have stayed constant at 17 percent, according to the 2006 and 2010 surveys. Past-month inhalant use stayed consistent at 5 percent through 1996, increased to 8 percent two years later, and dropped one percentage point in 2000 (7 percent). The number of these students reporting past-month inhalant use stayed continuous at 7 percent through the 2002 and 2004 surveys, slightly dropped in 2006 (6 percent), and stayed constant in the 2010 statewide assessment (6 percent). In the most recent statewide assessment conducted in 2012, the prevalence of lifetime and past month inhalant use decreased to 16 percent and 5 percent respectively. Data from the statewide assessment in 2008 has not been added to the trend lines noted in the statewide overview above because the manner in which inhalant use was calculated changed in 2008.

6.2

Environment

Thirty-four percent of district students reported that it was somewhat or very easy to obtain an inhalant (41 percent statewide), 2 percent indicated that most or all of their close friends use inhalants (2 percent statewide), and 75 percent said that inhalant use was very dangerous (74 percent statewide) (See Figure 3).

Drug and Alcohol Information

The inuence of substance use education programs may be reected in students attitudes toward the use of specic substances reported above. To whom a student may feel most comfortable turning to for assistance with a substance use problem or issue may help gauge the eect these various individuals are having on those attitudes. Sixty-seven percent of Marfa ISD students said they had received information about drugs and alcohol from any school source since classes began in the fall (58 percent statewide). Of the eight available responses as to the source of such information, a health class was reported by 58 percent of district students as a source for information about drugs and alcohol (47 percent statewide), while 73* percent said the source for this information was an assembly program (48 percent statewide). When asked where they would go for help with a drug or alcohol problem, 69 percent of Marfa ISD students said they would seek help from their friends (67 percent statewide), 56 percent would seek help from an adult friend or relative (62 percent statewide), and 60 percent would seek assistance from their parents (63 percent statewide). Forty percent would seek help from a counselor or program in school (37 percent statewide), and 31 percent would seek assistance from another adult in school, such as a teacher or nurse (41 percent statewide). (Fig. 4). Since school began in the fall, 6 percent of Marfa ISD students reported seeking help for any problems connected with alcohol or drug use from someone other than family or friends (8 percent statewide).
