Drug/Alcohol Abuse

Drug/Alcohol Abuse Prevention
In support of and in compliance with the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989, be advised that the unlawful possession, use or distribution of drugs and alcohol by students on Sandusky Career Center or Sandusky City Schools property is clearly prohibited. Failure to comply with this guideline will jeopardize continued enrollment in the school.

Students enrolled in Sandusky Career Center programs shall not knowingly possess, use, sell, give or otherwise transmit, or be under the influence of any intoxicant or drug or counterfeit (look-alike) controlled substance or drug paraphernalia, the possession of which is prohibited by law:
  • On property owned, leased by, or under the control of the Sandusky Career Center, including vehicles used for the transportation of students.
  • On any public or private property during scheduled school hours including lunch and class breaks.
  • At any school sponsored activities or events.
  • Drugs prohibited by this policy include any stimulant, depressant, narcotic or hallucinogenic drugs and alcohol or intoxicants of any kind, but does not include medication as defined in this policy.
Drug paraphernalia prohibited under this policy is defined as instruments such as pipes, roach clips, rolling papers and/or machines, syringes, hypodermic needles, cocaine spoons or kits and any other items normally or actually used for the packing, conveyance, dispensation or use of drugs. Drug paraphernalia will be subject to confiscation. In accordance with state law (O.R.C. 2925.01), a counterfeit controlled substance is defined as follows:
  • Any drug that bears, or whose container or label bears a trademark, trade name or other identifying mark used without authorization of the owner or rights to such trademark, trade name or identifying mark;
  • Any unmarked or unlabeled substance that is represented to be a controlled substance manufactured, processed, packed or distributed by a person other than the person that manufactured, processed, packed or distributed it;
  • Any substance that is represented to be a controlled substance but is not a controlled or is a different controlled substance;
  • Any substance other than a controlled substance that a reasonable person would believe to be a controlled substance because of its similarity in shape, size, color, or its markings, labeling, packaging, distribution or the price for which it is sold or offered for sale.
If a student is suspected of being under the influence of drugs/alcohol, the student will be removed from school property. Off campus training sites are considered school property. In case of dispute, the grievance policy will be followed.
