1 NORTH PUTNAM COMMUNITY SCHOOL CORPORATION DRUG, ALCOHOL AND TOBACCO TESTING POLICY (ADOPTED 6/11/97) INTRODUCTION Safety is a necessity any time students are involved in or in route to a school sponsored activity. Drug free students are necessities for a positive learning environment: in academic classrooms, in athletic activities, and in other competitive/performing arenas. The positive learning environment cannot exist if our students' minds are dulled by substance abuse. The risks associated with substance abuse may include the possibility of impaired judgement, diminished capacity, deterioration of the organs of the body, addiction, and conditions that substantially inhibit a person from performing to his/her fullest potential. Substance abuse is a national program: it is illegal, it is a danger to physical health; and it is an insurmountable obstacle to learning. MISSION STATEMENT The North Putnam Community School Corporation random drug and alcohol testing program emphasizes three primary objectives: to promote the safety of students, to create a positive learning environment, and to encourage the students representing North Putnam High School to be drug free. SECTION I PURPOSES OF THE PROGRAM A. All North Putnam High School students are invited to participate in the random drug and alcohol testing program. In addition, students who drive a vehicle to school, who are enrolled in a driver education program, or who plan to be involved in any extracurricular and/or co-curricular activity must sign (along with parents/guardians) a drug testing consent form to be eligible to participate in these activities. B. It is a privilege for students who meet both the scholastic and physical conditions of eligibility to participate in any of these activities. All of these activities require that students be at their best and chemical-free in order to provide a safe environment for themselves and other students who potentially could be affected.
2 C. The purposes of this program are: 1. To protect students who are driving to school, participating in a driver education program, or participating in any extracurricular and co-curricular activities when they are found to have illegal substances in their bodies. 2. To educate participant and parents on the serious physical, mental, and emotional harm caused by substance abuse. 3. To assist participants who might be tempted to use illegal substances to say no. 4. To prevent injury, illness, and harm as a result of substance abuse. 5. To maintain extracurricular and co-curricular program environments free of drug, alcohol, intoxicant, and tobacco use and abuse. 6. To expose and educate participants to a procedure frequently and increasingly used in society. 7. To direct students away from substance abuse. D. It is recognized that serious attention is being given to substance abuse problems in private business and industry, in government, in schools, and in the colleges throughout the country. This program is consistent with North Putnam High School rules and regulations concerning the use and abuse of drugs, alcohol, intoxicants, and tobacco. North Putnam High School has a strong commitment to the health, safety, and welfare of its students. Results of studies throughout the United States reveal an increased substance abuse problem, and indicate that more than education alone is necessary to encourage students to choose a lifestyle free of substance abuse. SECTION II SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP Substance abuse needs to be comprehensively and holistically addressed in order to promote the health and safety of our students. An environment free of substance abuse must be the stated goal of the school district. The support and cooperation of the entire community is essential if the goal is to be realized. SECTION III RANDOM TESTING PROGRAM A. A laboratory certified under the auspices of the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act' (CLIA) and certified as a Medical Laboratory by the State Board of Health and the Federal agency which governs Medical Laboratories (HHS) under CLIA will supervise the testing program, provide training, set up the testing environment, guarantee samples, and supervise the chain-of-custody. To maintain anonymity, a student's number, not a student's name, shall be
3 used in conjunction with testing samples. B. Each student shall be provided with a consent form, a copy of which is attached hereto, which must be dated and signed by the student and by a custodial parent or guardian before such student shall be eligible to participate in the activities listed in Sec. I-A. By signing the consent form, the student agrees to provide, at any time requested, a urine and/or breath sample to be tested for drugs, tobacco and alcohol. The custodial parent(s) or guardian(s) also gives consent to the providing of the urine and/or sample signing the form. C. Any student who will be involved in any activity outlined in Sec. I-A must sign a consent to test form prior to the beginning of that activity. Failure to sign and return the consent to test form shall results in non-participation for the full school year. D. The TESTING PORTION of this program requires participants to submit to random urine and/or breath sampling. The North Putnam High School administration shall use a procedure to ensure that the privacy rights of individual students will be protected. E. CONFIDENTIALITY: The testing results shall remain confidential. The results of a positive test of any student participant may be disclosed only to the Principal/Athletic Director/Student Assistance Coordinator. The principal will notify the student and his/her parents. F. The EDUCATION PORTION of this program will provide an opportunity for participants and parents to gain a greater awareness of substance use and abuse issues. Information regarding this policy will be provided to all students and parents by the principal/administrative designee. Participants, with the support of their parents, will be encouraged to choose a drug free lifestyle. Each prospective participant shall receive a copy of this policy and the policy will be explained to them at that time. Students will receive information as to where they can seek professional help, if needed, for a use or abuse problem. Each sponsor/coach/director will reinforce this program, and the harmful consequences of drug, tobacco and alcohol use to all participating students. SECTION IV TEST RESULTS A. This program seeks to provide needed help for students who have a verified ''positive" test. The student's health, welfare, and safety will be the reason for preventing him/her from participation in the activities listed in Sec. I-A.
