DeRicco, Beth
Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse and Violence Prevention
This guide describes the requirements of the 1989 amendments to the "Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act" (DFSCA), as articulated in the "Education Department General Administrative Regulations" (EDGAR) Part 86,--the Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Regulations--and ways in which institutions of higher education (IHEs) have met these requirements. Part 86 pertains to "Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention." This guide is designed to support personnel responsible for preventing the illegal use of alcohol and other drugs (AOD) on campus, especially staff designated as AOD prevention coordinators and those in student affairs, residential life, health services, and campus security. Senior administrators, including presidents, deans, and legal counsel, also may find this guide a valuable resource. The introductory chapter presents the certification requirements IHEs must meet under the regulations and notes the consequences of failure to comply; it also provides information on meeting legal requirements not covered under Part 86 regulations. The subsequent chapters address the two general requirements of the Part 86 regulations. Chapter 2 outlines the requirements of the written annual notification and describes several formats that IHEs have used to present information required under the regulations to their students. Chapter 3 discusses the preparation of biennial reviews and provides excerpts from reports of several IHEs. Appended are: (1) EDGAR Part 86 Contents and Subparts A--General, B, and D; (2) Part 86 Compliance Checklist; (3) Federal Trafficking Penalties; (4) University of Georgia: Policy on Alcohol and Other Drugs; (5) Strategic Objectives and Tactics Focused on Environmental Change; and (6) Supplemental Checklist. (Contains 40 notes and 6 resources.) [This is an updated version of ED435334.]
