BROOKVILLE, JEFFERSON COUNTY - Bullying, drugs, Keystone Exams and grades are just some of the things students have to deal with.

"We have seen an increase in issues with regards to students using both in and out of school and so therefore we are hoping to help parents become more aware of how to identify issues that could addressing your students or what students maybe involved in" said Assistant Principal Ruthanne Barbazzeni.

Brookville School District opened the school for a community awareness event that included sessions on drug trends, bullying, the Keystone Exams and on the school's student management system.

"I think it's important for the community to realize we work real hard at hoping our students be successful and sometimes it's not viewed that way and so we want to share with them thing that we are doing to help our students and their children have happy healthy productive lives" said Barbazenni.

"I think it's great to get parents involved. I think we need to have more parent involvement I think they need to be aware and watch some of things their student are doing and the issues that are facing the kids and the decisions they have to make" added Leslie Caylor.

The sessions were followed by a big indoor tailgate.
