Get Involved

Email or call any parent rep if to be involved or to become better educated about prevention issues. We have Parent Reps representing all grades for the DS Regional Schools. Find a list of parent reps HERE.

SPAN-DS invites all parents and guardians in the Dover-Sherborn community to get involved. We are a parent-led substance abuse prevention coalition that works very closely with the schools. We meet three times a year with school administrators including Superintendents, Headmasters, Guidance and Health Teachers, a variety of other faculty, law enforcement and clergy.

Join us when we host events, speakers and educational events or when we gather for “Conversations That Count” (CTC’s). Theses informal gatherings/coffees are a chance to network and navigate these sometimes challenging years raising our teens. For more information about our CTC’s watch the weekly emails from the school, check the website under “Events” or check with the Parent Rep for your child’s grade.

“The Dover-Sherborn coalition is doing all the right things, and we are glad to be able to help and support them.”    

District Attorney for Norfolk County, Michael Morrisey


SPAN-DS seeks to prevent and decrease substance abuse in our communities, especially among youth. To that end we help build networks among parents, students, and other individuals that will:
  • Heighten awareness
  • Promote responsible behaviors
  • Encourage strong support systems
