Alcohol and Drug-Free School
It is the intent of the School Board that work
environments be free of the presence of illegal drugs and alcohol,
and that employees perform their tasks safely and efficiently
without the influence of illegal drugs or alcohol.
The Board recognizes the use of drugs and/or alcohol or the
dependency thereon as a serious health, safety, and security
problem; therefore, employees are prohibited from unlawful manufacture,
distribution, dispensing, possessing, use, or being under the
influence of illegal drugs as defined by state or federal statute
or regulation, or alcohol, while on duty, on or off the workplace.
"Workplace" means the site for the performance of
work for the district, including any district-used building
or premises and any district-owned vehicle or any other vehicle
used to transport students to and from school or school activities.
The following violations of this policy shall be grounds for
disciplinary action implemented by the Superintendent:
a. Working under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs,
no matter where consumed.
b. Having an unsealed container of alcohol, or consuming alcohol
on school property. (Any employee who finds any type of container
of alcohol on school property should report it to the Principal
as soon as possible.)
c. Consuming, possessing or distributing illegal drugs on school
d. Consuming, possessing, or distributing alcohol or illegal
drugs not on school property while at official school functions.
Such functions include those authorized and conducted by the
school with school officials present, in charge, and on duty,
such as but not limited to:
1. Interscholastic athletic contests;
2. Field trips;
3. School dances.
This policy also applies to all volunteers, non-employee chaperones,
or others brought into contact with students as a part of school
