***New for 2019-2020***
Consequences for Possession/Use of Tobacco, Alcohol, Drugs and Vape Products:
There are a few changes to our drug, alcohol, and tobacco/nicotine products policy for the 2019-2020 school year. These policy changes were the result of a recommendation from a Bethel High School committee that included administrators, teachers, parents, coaches, and club advisors. In an effort to promote a safe and healthy lifestyle, we are introducing this policy to help students understand the effects of self-destructive habits involving alcohol, drugs, and tobacco/nicotine products in the hope that they will refrain from future at-risk behavior. In addition, the new policy provides an opportunity for students who are in violation to seek support and reduce the term of their suspension.
Please note: this new policy (as delineated below) applies to all extracurricular activities (sports, clubs, band, musical etc…)
Drug, Alcohol and Tobacco/Nicotine Products Policy
The first offense will result in a minimum 60-day suspension from all extracurricular/athletic activities and this will include loss of leadership roles. Students will have the opportunity to reduce the duration of the suspension to a minimum of 21 days (3 calendar weeks) if they meet the following conditions:
- Research and respond to a published article relating to the student’s infraction.
- A minimum of 2 meetings with school substance abuse counselor or school counselor to discuss the behavior.
- Publicly apologize to extracurricular group/teammates and to advisors/coach.
- For a drug infraction, the student must pass a drug test conducted by a private facility. Student is responsible for the cost of the drug test.
A second offense within the same school year will result in loss of extracurricular activities for the duration of the school year.
