What If ...? Suggested Guidelines for School Policy Concerning Drug-Related Problems.
Oklahoma State Dept. of Education, Oklahoma City.
This manual provides school personnel with guidelines for developing school policies on drug-related problems and the prevention of future problems. Although the guide is designed for specific use in Oklahoma schools, it can serve as a model for other secondary schools. The need for a school policy is discussed and the role of the principal, counselors, and teachers in dealing with drug abusers is examined. Laws relating to drug possession are described, including the justification for drug searches in school. Guidelines are presented for school and law enforcement relationships, suspension and expulsion, due process, handicapped students, confidentiality of communications, student records, and the use of community resources. Several hypothetical situations involving students and drugs are posited, and possible responses are included. The appendix provides definitions, offenses, and penalities as described by law. (KMF)
