The Board of Education believes that all students have the right to an education in safe and orderly school environments. The Department of Education (DOE) has a fundamental responsibility to provide a safe and healthy work and learning environment for all public school students, employees, and persons under its jurisdiction. The Board supports the DOE’s need to eliminate alcohol and illicit drug use and distribution in public schools.
ALCOHOL AND ILLICIT DRUG USE
The DOE shall develop regulations and procedures for public schools in an effort to eliminate alcohol and drug use and distribution on their respective campuses. The regulations, guidelines, and procedures developed shall be scientifically based and within the confines of state statutes and constitutional compliance.
