2121 - Substance Abuse Program

  • Policy

Student use of alcohol and other illegal drugs is capable of producing the organic disease of chemical dependency, and contributes to many significant social and educational problems.  The climate of this use adversely affects those who share the educational environment.

The South Kitsap School District supports abstinence from nicotine, alcohol, and other illegal drugs for all adolescents and children so they may reach full intellectual, emotional, social, and physical potential.

The goal is to achieve abstinence and provide the individuals with effective coping methods so they may become free, productive members of society.

The District is committed to develop and maintain a program based on home‑school‑community partnership to provide K‑12 programs in prevention, intervention and assessment, community treatment referral, and support activities for our students.  Professional treatment and aftercare, when needed, will remain the responsibility of the student's parent or guardian.  The District is committed to coopera­tion during treatment and aftercare.

The implementation of this policy, including staffing, in‑service training, and instructional materials, will be provided within the resources allocated in the annual budget of the school District.
