Drug Procedures

The Board of Education has adopted policies and procedures to implement a program to prevent the use of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees. These items are consistent with Section 5145 of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act as added by Section 22 of the Amendments of 1989 (P.L. 101-226). Copies of education and prevention programs, along with standards of conduct including disciplinary sanctions (including expulsion and referral for prosecution), and rehabilitation options for the mandatory program are available in the principal's office.
