A coalition of parents, educators, law enforcement officials and other community stakeholders have decided to meet monthly in an effort to combat illicit drug use among Crescenta Valley students. The Crescenta Valley Drug and Alcohol Prevention Council is expected to meet every fourth Thursday at Crescenta Valley High beginning in January, echoing the community-wide effort that minimized drugs and alcohol exposure for teens during the late 1980s and early ’90s. This semester alone, 31 high school students and one middle school student have been investigated for expulsion for alleged drug and alcohol use. Of those, 20 instances occurred in Crescenta Valley, prompting the council to take a more permanent tack, organizers said.

Dave Silversparre said at the Crescenta Valley Drug & Alcohol Prevention Coalition meeting April 22 that the issue is not rampant. “If it was out of control in the La Crescenta area, I think we would have seen an increase in calls for service,” he said.
