BOARD POLICY - 5131.6
The Board of Education recognizes that the use of alcohol or other drugs adversely affects student learning, is physically and emotionally harmful, and can result in serious social and legal consequences. The use of steroids and other performance-enhancing supplements also presents a serious health and safety hazard. As part of the District's drug prevention and intervention efforts, staff shall develop comprehensive programs and activities to foster safe, healthy, and drug-free environments that support student well-being.
The Superintendent or designee shall establish and implement administrative regulations and operating procedures relating to a districtwide Substance Abuse Education Program. This educational program shall be developed in conjunction with guidelines approved by the State Board of Education and offered as a comprehensive program of experiences designed to meet the needs of individual students. The District's alcohol and drug prevention and intervention programs shall be coordinated with other school and community-based services and programs and shall promote the involvement of parents/guardians. The Superintendent or designee may collaborate with the county office of education, community-based organizations, health providers, law enforcement agencies, local child welfare agencies, postsecondary institutions, businesses, and other public and private entities in program planning, implementation, and evaluation.
The Superintendent or designee shall clearly communicate to all students, staff, and parents/guardians the District's policies, regulations, and school rules related to the use of alcohol and other drugs. Students shall not possess, use, or sell alcohol or other drugs and related paraphernalia on school grounds or at school-sponsored activities. Any student who is found to have violated this policy shall be restricted from participating in co-curricular activities and shall be subject to disciplinary procedures, including, but not limited to, suspension or expulsion in accordance with the law, Board policy, and administrative regulation.
Students participating in interscholastic athletics are prohibited from using steroids, dietary supplements, synephrine or any other performance-enhancing drugs banned by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.
