What Are Districts' Written Policies Regarding Student Substance-Related Incidents? NCEE Evaluation Brief. NCEE 2012-4022
National Center for Education Evaluation and Regional Assistance
This brief describes key features of the high school alcohol and drug policies in the 100 largest school districts in the United States. The written policies of at least 80% of these districts include parent conferences, referral to law enforcement, principal-determined suspensions, or referral for expulsion hearings (or some combination of these) as a consequence for students caught possessing, using, selling, or distributing alcohol or other drugs. Policy documents also indicate that districts may refer students to counseling, classes, and community services to help students with substance use issues. (Contains 4 exhibits and 6 endnotes.)
