502.31 Substance Use/Abuse Treatment

The District recognizes that substance dependency is a treatable. Parents/guardians assume the primary responsibility for helping students who abuse harmful substances. The community and District will assist parents/guardians in that responsibility, because substance problems interfere with behavior, learning, and positive character development.

Students who violate District policies will be disciplined as outlined in policy 502.20 Tobacco Products, Alcohol, Drugs. However, if a second District policy violation occurs, the principal/designee may offer to allow the student to continue their education if they participate in a rehabilitation program which has been approved by the Superintendent/designee. If the program is successfully completed, the student may return to regular school and receive any credits earned while in the rehabilitation program. If the student does not complete the rehabilitation program, policy 502.20 Tobacco Products, Alcohol, Drugs will be enforced.
