Drug and Alcohol District Policy (KMORR 443.4)
The use and abuse of alcohol and drugs present a serious threat to the safety and stability of the school environment and to the health of students. The district expects a firm and concerted effort on the part of the staff and administration to prevent rule violations, to include but not be limited to routine Waukesha County Canine Unit visits to the buildings and parking lots, and random use of breathalyzers, discipline offenders and provide guidance and support to students. This prohibition does not apply to the authorized use of prescription medicine by a student for whom it was prescribed and in the manner and amount prescribed.
It is the intention of the district to be free of alcohol, drugs and other controlled substances, as well as the abuse of prescribed medicine and other mood altering chemicals. Therefore, it is the rule of the district that possessing, attempting to possess, using, manufacturing, distributing, dispensing or in any other manner transferring or being under the influence of illegal drugs and other controlled substances, real or counterfeit/look alike drugs, drug paraphernalia, alcohol or other intoxicants, or mood-altering substances, including but not limited to over-the-counter drugs such as diet pills, caffeine pills, cold remedy medicine, performance enhancement supplements, etc., shall not be permitted on the premises of any district owned property or at any school-sponsored activity, event or function.
Violations of this rule by students shall be treated according to established policies and rules. This rule shall apply cumulatively to all years the student is enrolled in the district. Any violation of applicable state laws or local ordinances shall result in referral to law enforcement.
A student may be required to submit to tests, including a breath test, to determine the presence of alcohol if a school official or law enforcement officer has reasonable suspicion that the student has alcohol in his/her system in violation of this rule. Such tests shall be administered by a law enforcement officer or other trained personnel approved by the superintendent or designee and shall meet state law requirements. A student may be disciplined for refusing to submit to such test.
Any student who asks for help in solving a problem caused by the use or abuse of alcohol or drugs will be referred to appropriate resources such as the student assistance program, or other appropriate agencies, and provided assistance to correct such problem(s). Staff members shall keep student alcohol and other drug information confidential to the extent required by law.
Any district student possessing, attempting to possess, using, manufacturing, distributing, dispensing, or in any other manner transferring or being under the influence of illegal drugs and other controlled substances, alcohol, real or counterfeit/look alike drugs, drug paraphernalia, mood-altering substances, including but not limited to over-the-counter drugs such as diet pills, caffeine pills, cold remedy medicines, performance enhancing supplements, etc., during the school day, on school premises or while involved in any school-sponsored activity, event, or function on or off school premises and during or after the school day where students are under the jurisdiction of the school district shall be subject to the following:
Any student found to be in violation of this rule shall be suspended from school for not less than three (3) days and referred to local law enforcement. The administration may also recommend the student to the board for expulsion from school.
The administration may also agree to hold an expulsion recommendation in abeyance if the student submits written evidence that the student participated in alcohol and other drug counseling and followed the counselor’s recommendations within 30 days of the suspension. Said counseling will not be paid for by the district, but may be obtained from the following sources, if mutually agreed to by the student and the building principal before the counseling begins: a law enforcement agency, a drug/alcohol prevention agency, or a non-school counselor.
Second/Subsequent Violations or Dealing or Distributing
Any student who violates this rule more than once during his/her enrollment in the district shall be suspended from school, referred to local law enforcement, and may be recommended to the board for expulsion from school.
Any student who violates this rule (whether a first or subsequent violation) by distributing, dispensing or in any other manner transferring controlled substances, intoxicants, real or counterfeit/look alike drugs or drug paraphernalia, or mood-altering substances, as defined above, shall be suspended from school, referred to local law enforcement, and may be recommended to the board for expulsion from school.Adopted: August 19, 2008Last Revised: December 4, 2012
