Student Drug and Alcohol Policy

The Edmonds School District recognizes that the use/abuse and possession of alcohol, controlled, illegal, addictive or harmful substance(s), including anabolic steroids, is a societal problem and may represent an impairment to the normal development, well-being and academic performance of students. To ensure the safety, health and well-being of all students, the district is committed to the development of a program which emphasizes prevention, intervention, aftercare support and necessary corrective actions.

The district also recognizes the effects to the school, home and community resulting from drug and alcohol use/abuse. While the primary obligation to seek assistance rests with the student and his/her parent(s)/guardian(s), school staff shall work with the home and community to develop and implement a comprehensive prevention and intervention program.

DISTRICT POLICY: Any student who is under the influence of or possesses, sells, offers for sale or distributes alcohol or controlled substances or drug paraphernalia will be considered under the disciplinary category of exceptional misconduct, which warrants an immediate resort to a short-term or long-term suspension or expulsion.
