SUBSTANCE ABUSE ‑ STUDENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
The primary responsibility for helping students who are involved with substance abuse lies with the students and their parents. Nevertheless, the School Board strives to provide a supportive school environment for students involved with substance use or abuse.
The School Board supports substance abuse programs which vary according to individual needs. Included among these are programs for persons who desire more information, and for those who need help with intervention activities and programs.
The School Board supports efforts to help students during the school day as well as to reinforce programs provided by other sources. To that end, individual school substance abuse programs may provide group experiences, individual counseling and other programs.
Alcohol and illegal drug use and abuse are prohibited by the Code of Student Conduct in compliance with all applicable federal, state or local laws and ordinances.
