2009 Texas School Survey of Drug and Alcohol Use

Introduction
The Texas School Survey of Drug and Alcohol Use is sponsored by the Texas Commission on
Alcohol and Drug Abuse (TCADA) 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. TCADA 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 of Drug and Alcohol Use was conducted in your school
district during the Spring of 2009. Your local survey results are presented in this report. Findings
from the statewide assessment, which was conducted in the Spring of 2008, will be presented once
all the data are available.
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, is bound as a companion volume. It 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 2008 statewide survey as well
as to the district-level data from this year. This section briefly presents some basic information
about 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. 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 twelve drugs including tobacco and alcohol products, inhalants,
marijuana, powdered cocaine, crack, hallucinogens, uppers, downers, Rohypnol, 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.
The secondary survey instrument was revised as part of the 1998 assessment. This revision was
largely a rewording and/or a reformatting of the existing questions in such a manner as to not disrupt
local or statewide over-time analyses. There were, however, a number of additions that were made
as part of this overhaul: Rohypnol and heroin were added to the matrix of illicit substances students
were asked about; a new question was added dealing with parental attitudes toward cigarette; a new
question was added to ascertain the delivery-system methods most commonly used by those students
who smoke marijuana; and several brief questions were added to gauge the gambling habits of the
student population.
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 2008 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

Secondary

4 through 6
4 through 5

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 2008 statewide survey data that will be presented at a later date will be 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 respondent’s
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 "Oxaril," 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 hat 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,

4

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 recoded 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 is 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 seven elementary and seventeen 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, have been reformatted this year in an effort to make them more accessible. These tables have
been 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
provided in a companion volume. The only change to these tables made as part of the reformatting,
and applicable only with regard to the secondary reports, was to the percentages listed under the
“School Year” heading. Previously, the percentages in this category excluded those found under the
“Past Month” heading. As reformatted, these “School Year” percentages include the “Past Month”
percentages as well.

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 of Drug and Alcohol Use. 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:
Medium:

Large:

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.

Large:

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, and heroin.
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, gasoline, freon, poppers, shoe shine, 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 three types of tables in which data may be presented. These include
general substance use tables (Tables 1-24), alcohol tables (Tables A1-A4) 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

8

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
Hidalgo ISD
Secondary Executive Summary
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 2008, 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 plot 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 findings 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. This is followed by sections dealing with the
various substances covered by the survey---tobacco, alcohol, inhalants, and illicit drugs. This is
followed by a section that explores selected characteristics associated with substance use in the
district. The summary concludes with a section dealing with where students come by what they
know about drugs and alcohol and to whom they might turn if they thought they were having a
problem.
For context, each section dealing with substance use will begin with a brief, over-time glimpse of
the statewide trends over the last decade and a half with regard to that substance
Use data are then sandwiched in between subsections dealing with environment and, where the data
are applicable, with behavior specifically associated with substance use. 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 behavior category are such
things as "binge drinking" (the consuming of five 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 influence of alcohol or drugs.
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 thing? Is it casual use, a once-in-a-while behavior? Or
is it regular use, a monthly, weekly, or---in the case of tobacco products in particular---a daily
habit? Further, use data are used to differentiate 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 sniff correction fluid from those who sniff glue, and those who smoke marijuana from
those who snort powdered cocaine.
Two final 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 reflected in the executive summary and in the corresponding figures
Second, some data in this report are marked with an asterisk. 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 statistically significant.
The percentages referred to in the executive summary that follows were taken from the tables found
in "Part I: District Survey Results." Figures referenced throughout this report are included in "Part
III: Executive Summary."

Demographic Overview
In the Spring of 2009, the Texas School Survey was administered to students in grades 7 through
12 in the Hidalgo Independent School District (HISD). 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 sampling of all the students. The accuracy of the data
requires that school staff administering the survey followed the protocols
A total of 1064 students completed the questionnaire. Of that number, 31 surveys were excluded
from analysis because students did not indicate their grade or age, or because they were identified
as exaggerators (i.e., claimed to have used a non-existent drug or reported overly excessive drug
use). The final number of surveys included in the overall district analysis was 1033, consisting of:

Seventeen percent are 7th graders, 16 percent are 8th graders, 20 percent are 9th graders, 18
percent are 10th graders, 16 percent are 11th graders, and 13 percent are 12th graders;

A fairly even split of male (51 percent) and female (49 percent) students;

An ethnic breakdown that is 92 percent Mexican-American, 1 percent white, 1 percent AfricanAmerican, 1 percent Native American, less than 1 percent Asian-American, and 6 percent other;

Seventy percent say they live in a two-parent home, and 74 percent report they have lived in the
district for three or more years;

Twenty-eight percent say their parent(s) are college graduates, and 62 percent indicate they
qualify for free/reduced lunches at school.

Tobacco
General tobacco use includes both cigarettes and smokeless tobacco products.
Statewide Overview. Well over half of secondary students statewide reported experimental use of
tobacco products throughout the 1990’s. In 2000, however, the number of these students who
reported such use dipped slightly (51 percent). This downward trend continued through the 2002
(45 percent), 2004 (39 percent), 2006 (35 percent), and 2008 (32 percent) statewide assessments.
The prevalence of those secondary students reporting past-month general tobacco use, which had
been inching upward through 1996, leveled off in 1998, and began a steady, incremental decline in
the 2000 (22 percent), 2002 (18 percent), 2004 (17 percent), 2006 (15 percent), and 2008 (13
percent) statewide surveys. This downward movement in tobacco use appears to be more prevalent
with regard to cigarettes than it does with regard to the smokeless variety.
District Overview. Overall, the general use of tobacco products among Hidalgo ISD students 2009
was lower than that reported by their counterparts statewide, including statistically significant
differences with regard to HISD students who reported that cigarettes are somewhat or very easy to
obtain, smokeless tobacco products are somewhat or very easy to obtain, students who said they
“don’t know” how their parents feel about kids their age smoking cigarettes, students who believe
tobacco is “very dangerous”, students who reported smoking cigarettes on a daily basis, students
who have experimented with smokeless tobacco, and students who have reported past month use of
smokeless tobacco.
Environment. Nearly half of Hidalgo ISD students (45* percent) reported that cigarettes are
somewhat or very easy to get (55 percent statewide), while 11 percent said most or all of their close
friends smoke cigarettes (9 percent statewide). Just over a fifth of district students (21* percent)
indicated that smokeless tobacco products are somewhat or very easy to get (37 percent statewide),
and 3 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.”
Eighty-three percent of Hidalgo ISD students said their parents strongly or mildly disapprove of
kids smoking (84 percent statewide), while 5 percent said their parents neither approve nor
disapprove (7 percent statewide), and 10* percent of district students said they "don't know" how
their parents feel about kids their age smoking cigarettes (8 percent statewide).
Sixty-two* percent of Hidalgo students believe that tobacco use is "very dangerous" (50 percent
statewide) (Fig. 15).
Use. Thirty-two percent of Hidalgo students reported general tobacco use at least once during their
lifetimes (32 percent statewide) (Fig. 1)
Lifetime Tobacco
7th: 20 percent (17 percent statewide); 8th: 24 percent (23 percent statewide).
9th: 25 percent (30 percent statewide); 10th: 42 percent (36 percent statewide).
11th: 46 percent (41 percent statewide); 12th: 40 percent (48 percent statewide).

Twelve percent of Hidalgo ISD students said they had used a tobacco product during the past
month (13 percent statewide) (Fig. 2).
Past-month Tobacco
7th: 6 percent (5 percent statewide); 8th: 8 percent (6 percent statewide).
9th: 8 percent (11 percent statewide); 10th: 12 percent (16 percent statewide).
11th: 21 percent (19 percent statewide); 12th: 22 percent (24 percent statewide).
Thirty-two percent of Hidalgo students reported smoking cigarettes at least once during their
lifetimes (30 percent statewide), while 12 percent said they had smoked cigarettes during the past
month (12 percent statewide), and 1* percent reported smoking cigarettes on a daily basis (3
percent statewide).
Daily Cigarette
7th: less than 1 percent (less than 1 percent statewide); 8th: less than 1 percent (1 percent
statewide).
9th: 2 percent (1 percent statewide); 10th: 2 percent (4 percent statewide).
11th: 1 percent (5 percent statewide); 12th: 2* percent (7 percent statewide).
Experimental use of smokeless tobacco products was reported by 4* percent of Hidalgo ISD
students (10 percent statewide), 2* percent said they had used a smokeless tobacco product during
the past month (4 percent statewide), and less than 1 percent reported using a smokeless tobacco
product on a daily basis (1 percent statewide).

Alcohol
Alcohol is the most widely used substance among students statewide and in the Hidalgo ISD.
Statewide Overview. As the 1990’s began, 81 percent of secondary students statewide reported
experimental alcohol use. Over the decade that followed, the number of these students reporting
such use inched downward in each successive statewide assessment. This downward trend in
lifetime alcohol use leveled off at 71 percent in the 2000 and 2002 statewide assessments, but
picked up again in the 2004 (68 percent), 2006 (66 percent), and 2008 (63 percent) statewide data.
On the other hand, past-month alcohol use among secondary students statewide has been more of a
roller-coaster-ride through the same period, beginning with 43 percent of these students in 1990,
dropping to 37 percent in 1992, inching back upward to 39 percent in 1994, leveling off in 1996
and 1998 at 38 percent, and dipping down to 36 percent in 2000, 35 percent in 2002, 33 percent in
2004, 32 percent in 2006, and 30 percent in 2008.
District Overview. Overall, Hidalgo ISD students were drinking alcohol in 2009 at rates lower
than those reported by their peers statewide, including statistically significant differences with
regard to HISD students who reported most or all of their close friends drink alcohol, that alcohol is
somewhat easy or very easy to obtain, the students who obtain their alcohol “from friends,” their
parents neither approve nor disapprove or they “don’t know” how their parents feel, students who
reported alcohol use is “very dangerous,” students who have consumed alcohol during the past
month, beer and wine coolers are consumed the most, students who reported they drink wine or
beer on a weekly or monthly basis, students who reported they drink five or more drinks on average
when they drink, students who have reported to class at least once “drunk,” students who have
gotten into trouble in the past year with the police because of their alcohol use, and students who
have had “difficulties of any kind” with a friend because of their own alcohol use.
Environment. Twenty-six* percent of district students reported most or all of their close friends
drink alcohol (30 percent statewide), and 51* percent said alcohol (beer, wine coolers, wine, and
liquor) was somewhat easy or very easy to obtain (66 percent statewide).
Students who said they consume alcohol were asked where they obtained it most of the time or
always. Thirty percent of district students said they obtain alcohol "at parties" (29 percent
statewide), while 18* percent responded that they get it "from friends" (24 percent statewide); and
8 percent reported they get alcohol "from the store" (7 percent statewide).
Parental attitudes can be a major factor in whether or not a student uses alcohol. When asked how
their parents feel about kids their age drinking beer, 80 percent of Hidalgo students said their
parents strongly or mildly disapprove (78 percent statewide), while 6* percent said their parents
neither approve nor disapprove of such behavior (10 percent statewide), and 10* percent said they
"don't know" how their parents feel about kids their age drinking beer (7 percent statewide) (Fig.
16).
More than half of Hidalgo ISD students (54* percent) feel that it is "very dangerous" to use alcohol
(44 percent statewide) (Fig. 15).
Use. Sixty percent of Hidalgo students reported consuming alcohol at least once during their
lifetimes (63 percent statewide) (Fig. 1).

Illicit and Licit Substances
Illicit drugs are defined 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
physician’s prescription (codeine, Oxycontin, Vicodin or Valium).
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
climb---the experimental use rate by 6 percent (to 28 percent) and the doubling 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, past-month use of an illicit substance
actually edged downward a 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 was detected in 2004, and continued in
2006---28 percent for lifetime and 13 percent for past-month uses. A further slight decline occurred
in the most recent statewide assessment, as 26 percent said they had used an illicit substance at least
once in their lifetimes and 12 percent reported they had done so in the previous month.
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 dipped 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 continues through the most recent
statewide assessment---to 25 percent for lifetime and 10 percent for past-month uses.
The 2004 statewide survey of secondary students suggests a decline in the use of the most
"popular" illicit drugs---cocaine, crack, uppers, downers, ecstasy, and Rohypnol---as the underlying
cause of the decline in the general use categories. Of these substances, ecstasy is arguably the most
notable. Between 1996 and 2000, experimental ecstasy use had remained steady at about 5 percent,
whereas past-month ecstasy use had been inching up from just under 1 percent to 2 percent during
that same period. There was a sharp, upward spike in ecstasy use in 2002, to 9 percent for
experimental use and 3 percent for past-month use. The 2004 statewide survey indicated a sharp 3
percent drop in experimental ecstasy use (6 percent) and a corresponding one percent drop in pastmonth use (2 percent). The two most recent assessments (2006 and 2008) suggest a return to the
pre-spike level of 5 percent for experimental ecstasy use and 2 percent for such use in the past
month.
Finally, a new question was added in 2006 that seeks to measure the abuse of the licit substances
such as prescription codeine cough syrup and over-the-counter cold medicines. Further prescription
drugs were added in 2008. No conclusions, even tentative ones, can be reached concerning trends
until several statewide assessments can be included

District Overview. Overall, the use of illicit drugs and of marijuana in particular, among Hidalgo
ISD secondary students in 2009 was lower than that reported by their counterparts statewide,
including statistically significant differences with regard to HISD students who reported that
marijuana was somewhat or very easy to obtain, that uppers, downers, ecstasy, and heroin are
easily accessible, students who reported most or all of their close friends smoke marijuana, they
“don’t know” how their parents feel about kids their age using marijuana or said their parents
neither approve or disapprove, students who believe that marijuana, ecstasy, and crack use is “very
dangerous,” students who have reported experimental use of an illicit drug, smoking marijuana at
least once in their lifetimes, past-month marijuana use, students who have reported using downers,
uppers, hallucinogens, and ecstasy, students who reported using a prescription cough syrup
containing codeine, indicated that have used Vicodin/Lortab/Lorcet, Valium Diazepam, Xanax or
Alprazolam, students who have indicated using over the counter products DXM or Coricidin,
attending class at least once “stoned” on marijuana, students who said marijuana or other drugs
were used at parties, and students who have said they had gotten into “difficulties of any kind’ with
friends because of their own drug use.
Environment. Students were asked how available they believed certain substances were to obtain.
About a quarter of Hidalgo ISD students (24* percent) said marijuana was somewhat or very easy
to obtain (39 percent statewide); about a fifth indicated that powdered cocaine was easily accessible
(17 percent/20 percent statewide); and less than a fifth believe that uppers (7* percent/16 percent
statewide), downers (7* percent/16 percent statewide), and ecstasy (11* percent/18 percent
statewide) are easily accessible to them. Seven* percent of district students said they believed
heroin was somewhat or very easy to obtain (12 percent statewide).
With regard to the question of the effects of peer influence on substance use, 7* percent of Hidalgo
ISD students reported most or all of their close friends smoke marijuana (16 percent statewide).
And when asked about parental attitudes toward marijuana use, Hidalgo students reported a
disapproval rate of 86 percent (86 percent statewide). Ten* percent of district students said they
"don't know" how their parents feel about kids their age using marijuana (7 percent statewide),
while 2* percent said their parents neither approve nor disapprove (4 percent statewide) (Fig. 16).
Seventy-seven* percent of Hidalgo students believe that marijuana use is "very dangerous" (60
percent statewide). As for how Hidalgo ISD students viewed the risks associated with the use of
certain other illicit substances, 84* percent feel that use of ecstasy is "very dangerous" (79 percent
statewide), 86 percent believe that powdered cocaine use is "very dangerous" (82 percent
statewide), 88* percent feel that the use of crack is "very dangerous" (85 percent statewide), and 88
percent believe that heroin is “very dangerous” (87 percent statewide) (Fig. 15).
Use of illicit substances. In Hidalgo ISD, 15* percent of students reported experimental use of an
illicit drug (26 percent statewide), and 13* percent of Hidalgo ISD students reported smoking
marijuana at least once in their lifetimes (25 percent statewide) (Fig. 1)

Inhalants
In general, inhalants are common, licit substances (paints, thinners, correction fluid, glue, etc.)
which, when sniffed, huffed, or inhaled, produce an intoxicating effect. Data from the most recent
statewide assessment (2008) has not been added to the trend lines noted in the statewide overview
below because the manner in which inhalant use is being calculated has changed in 2008. These
data should not be considered in the context of any previous data either at the statewide or
district levels.
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 dropped to 19 percent in 1994 and 1996, but began to creep back upward in
1998 (22 percent). Experimental inhalant use has been inching downward in the three assessments
conducted in the new century---19 percent in 2000, 18 percent in 2002, and 17 percent in 2004.
This downward slide in experimental use appears to have stalled at 17 percent, according to the
2006 survey. Past-month inhalant use held steady at 5 percent through 1996, ticked up to 8 percent
two years later, and dropped a percentage point in 2000 (7 percent). The number of these students
reporting past-month inhalant use has stayed flat at 7 percent through the 2002 and 2004 surveys,
and was 6 percent in the 2006 statewide assessment.
District Overview. Overall, Hidalgo ISD students were using inhalants in 2009 at rates lower than
those reported by their counterparts statewide, including statistically significant differences with
regard to HISD students who reported inhalant use is “very dangerous” and have used inhalants at
least once during their lifetimes.
Environment. Thirty percent of district students reported that it was somewhat or very easy to
obtain an inhalant (49 percent statewide), 2 percent indicated that most or all of their close friends
use inhalants (3 percent statewide), and 79* percent said that inhalant use is “very dangerous” (72
percent statewide) (Fig. 15).
Use. Seven* percent of Hidalgo students reported using inhalants at least once during their
lifetimes (9 percent statewide) (Fig. 1). Lifetime inhalant use was reported by 8 percent of district
7th graders (18 percent statewide), 14 percent of district 8th graders (11 percent statewide), 3*
percent of district 9th graders (18 percent statewide), 8 percent of district 10th graders (10 percent
statewide), 4 percent of district 11th graders (13 percent statewide) and 4 percent of district 12th
graders (7 percent statewide).
Two percent of Hidalgo ISD students said they had used inhalants during the past month (3 percent
statewide) (Fig. 2). Past-month inhalant use was reported by 2 percent of district 7th graders (8
percent statewide), 3 percent of district 8th graders (8 percent statewide), 1 percent of district 9th
graders (6 percent statewide), 1 percent of district 10th graders (5 percent statewide), 1 percent of
district 11th graders (4 percent statewide) and 3 of district 12th graders (3 percent statewide).

Drug and Alcohol Information
The influence of substance use education programs may be reflected in students' attitudes toward
the use of specific substances reported above. The attitudes of students concerning substance use
may also be shaped by the messages provided by parents and the various forms of modern media
(i.e., television and radio, the internet, books and magazines, etc). To whom a student may feel
most comfortable turning to for assistance with a substance use problem or issue may help gauge
the effect these various messengers are having on those attitudes.
Seventy-three* percent of Hidalgo ISD students said they had gotten information about drugs and
alcohol from any school source since classes began in the Fall (60 percent statewide). Of the eight
available responses as to the source of such information, two stand out from the pack at the
statewide level
A “health class” was reported by 72* percent of district students as a source for information about
drugs and alcohol (49 percent statewide), while 48 percent said the source for this information was
“an assembly program” (47 percent statewide).
As for off-campus sources for substance use information, 60* percent of Hidalgo ISD students
indicated that their source was “TV, radio, or other audio/video” (52 percent statewide), 63*
percent said that their parents were such a source (49 percent statewide), 56* percent reported that
the source of substance use information was “books, magazines, or posters” (46 percent statewide),
and 34* percent indicated that “a website or on-line chat group” was a source (26 percent
statewide).
When asked where they would go for help with a drug or alcohol problem, the largest percentage of
Hidalgo students said they would seek help from their friends (67* percent/72 percent statewide),
followed by an adult friend or relative (68* percent/61 percent statewide) and their parents (71*
percent/61 percent statewide). District students are least likely to seek help for a drug or alcohol
problem from a counselor or program in school (44* percent/32 percent statewide), or another adult
in school, such as a teacher or nurse (47* percent/32 percent statewide) (Fig. 17).
Since school began in the Fall, 10* percent of Hidalgo students reported seeking help for any
problems connected with alcohol or drug use from someone other than family or friends (8 percent
statewide).
