    Whitehall-Coplay School District (WCSD) has begun working on three priority issues identified by a student survey in conjunction with the Communities that Care (CTC) program. Those issues are:

    1. parents who think it’s OK to host underage drinking parties
    2. student drug use (marijuana and synthetic drugs), but also hard drugs that have led to at least one fatality
    3. hunger – high percentage of students eligible for subsidized school lunches, and students reporting they are chronically hungry
