TEACHING ABOUT DRUGS, ALCOHOL AND TOBACCO

 


The Board of Education believes that effective drug education programs require both the acquisition of knowledge and the development of positive personal values. Both the school and other community agencies must share in the development and direction of programs to alleviate the problems of drug abuse.


Therefore, the school district will abide by the following:

 

1.       Establish and maintain a realistic, meaningful drug, alcohol and tobacco education program for students and adults that will be incorporated into the total educational program.

 

2.       Cooperate with government and private agencies offering services related to drug, alcohol and tobacco problems.

 

3.       Encourage and support activities that will develop a positive peer influence in the area of drugs, alcohol and tobacco.

 

4.       Create a climate whereby students may seek and receive counseling about drugs, alcohol and tobacco-related problems without fear of reprisal.

 

5.       Follow federal mandates concerning drug, alcohol and tobacco education.
