The faculty gather information about the student's behavior and determine whether the problem is isolated or a clear pattern of behavior. Then a psychologist may be consulted. "A lot of problematic behavior that adolescents display suggests drugs, but may not be drug related, "said Armstrong. Students say the programs have caused a positive change in the school.

"I think that the school's strong against drugs and alcopolicies hol are deterring use here. Also the ADAC programs are teaching people about the risks." Dendtler, and classmate Chris Mowry, also an ADAC member, this year's senior class has set say positive example for the rest of a the school. "In the senior class this year, no one has been kicked for drinking or drug use.

If a VES student is caught using drugs or alcohol, or with drug are called before a faculty disciparaphernalia, he and his advisor plinary committee. The student is given a chance to explain his behavior and is questioned. The committee recommends a penalty to the assistant headmaster, which is almost always expulsion from school. In the 1988-89 school year, there were three drug expulsions, three drinking expulsions and drinking suspensions.

This year there has been one drug expulsion, 12 drinking expulsions and four drinking suspensions. The 12 drinking suspensions all came from the same incident in which the students had a party on camThese figures show a depus. creasing number of drug expulsions and drinking suspensions, and roughly the same number of drinking expulsions when compared to the figures of the previous two years. If the alcohol use happened off campus, the first offense usually results in suspension and a professional evaluation for alcohol drug abuse. When a student admits to a faculty member that he thinks he has a substance abuse problem, no disciplinary action is taken.

Appropriate treatment is prescribed by a doctor or psychologist and the student is required to follow through to remain in school. "We want to teach kids the conof bad choices, but sequences also to recognize that kids who are seriously interested in coming to terms with a problem of substance abuse deserve our help, not a disciplinary response, "said Garmey. Armstrong says one reason for the success of such programs at VES is its small size. "There are no secrets at VES. There is a sense of solidarity because we are so small.

In a large place you can be anonymous. We try to listen very carefully so we can hear when there is a problem." Garmey says the school plans to administer an anonymous survey to gauge the effectiveness of the prevention programs. "We think it's working; we hope it's working.

VIRGINIA BEACH (AP) Three months before thousands of young people flock to the oceanfront for this year's Labor Day beach party, organizers of the redesigned event are far behind their fund raising goals. Soon after last year's Labor Day weekend party, called Greekfest, the city moved forward with an investigation of looting and rioting between blacks. police and oceanfront partiers, most of them young When that was finished, officials began drafting preparations for this year. But it took more than eight months to finish the Stuck without a firm festival plan until last process.

week, volunteer fund have been largely unable to pitch their program outline to potential sponsors, such as banks and corporations. Now playing catch-up, those fund-raisers for the Committee have received only $1,000 a small dent city-appointed Labor Day Community Coordination in their $100,000 goal. A strategy for this year's event was approved by a 9-2 City Council vote last week. Organizers expect to meet or exceed last year's attendance figure of 100,000 youngsters. "There is a lot of money that needs to be raised," William W.

Harrison co of the private sector subcommittee, told the council this month, "and the time is growing nigh in which to raise it." they will pitch the Laborfest '90 Fund-raisers say to a variety of businesses. Early in the campaign, they intend to solicit three large corporaplant tions: Sovran Bank, Norfolk Southern Corp. and Landmark Communications which publishes The Virginian-Pilot and The Ledger-Star. The group hopes to secure about $25,000 for lighting, staging, fencing and other preparations at Red Wing Park; about $30,000 for staging at three sites a at the Oceanfront; nearly $15,000 for a parade and opening and closing ceremonies; about $2,500 for an art show, and about $2,500 for a basketball exhibition. Mindful that much of the community would object to taxpayer financing for an event that resulted calamity in 1989, the City Council in February prohibited the use of tax money for this year's festival events.

Looters did extensive damage to oceanfront businesses last year and fund-raisers aren't sure those store owners will pitch in the $30,000 that organizers hope for. Harrison said donations from the resort strip were vital because other sponsors were unlikely to participate if oceanfront hotels, restaurants and retail shops are unwilling to contribute. State cries foul in hoops contest By The Associated Press Some Virginia recreation officials are calling a national basketball championship endorsed by hoops star Kareem Abdul Jabbar and sponsored by Coca-Cola at best disorganized and at worst a scam. The Los Angeles based national 3-on-3 basketball tournament called Coup de Hoop bills itself as a "nationwide grass roots tournament in search of the best '3-on-3' basketball team in America." But the search has stumbled in Virginia, where parks and recreation directors are puzzled that their cities have been billed as sites for a contest they know little or nothing about. "No one told me I was an area coordinator," said Portsmouth superintendent of recreation program services Thomas Norman, who is listed with the Coup de Hoop headquarters as one of five Virginia site directors.

"I don't know a single thing about it," Norman said. Parks and recreation departments in Leesburg, Hampton and Richmond also billed as Coup de Hoop sites had similar re- hey told us they'd be sending portable goals, basketballs, T-shirts, and I wasn't seeing Charles Badger Recreation Director sponses. "They called us early last month, and we initially agreed to do it," said Richmond parks and recreation program coordinator Cliff Townes, whose city is billed as primary Coup de Hoop site in the state. "But when we had a chance to back up and realize the magnitude of it, how big this thing was supposed to be with a $100,000 prize we decided we couldn't do it well enough on such short notice. When you got people playing for that kind of money, that's serious." Charles Badger, director of recreation for the city of Hampton, backed off for a different reason.

"I was going to do it," Badger said. "But after I said I would, I wasn't seeing anything more from them no ads, no support, no nothing. They told us they'd be sending portable goals, basketballs, T-shirts, and I wasn't seeing anything. There's supposed to be all these companies pushing it co*ke, L.A. Gear but I was questioning whether they were actually doing their part as far as getting this out across the country." Wayne Burton, administrative assistant with the Accomack County parks and recreation department, went ahead and held a first-round Coup de Hoop tournament April 28 supplying his own goals and balls.

Now he has no idea what to do with his winners. "I'm kind of lost," said Burton, who responded to a brochure mailed in March from Coup de Hoop headquarters by setting up his local contest. Burton understood that winning teams would advance to regional play in Atlanta the first weekend in June. The other three regional sites listed in Coup de Hoop literature are New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. The national championship is scheduled to be played June 16 at Muscle Beach in Venice, Calif.
