Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act


The U.S. Department of Education has issued regulations implementing the provisions of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989.  These regulations require that the College distribute the following information annually to you in writing concerning the possession, use, or distribution of alcohol and illicit drugs at the College. 

The College's policy on substance abuse and alcoholic beverages, along with related information on College sanctions for violation of this policy; on criminal sanctions for the illegal possession or distribution of drugs and alcohol; on health risks of drugs and alcohol; and on places to get help concerning the illicit use and abuse of alcohol and drugs is available on the Human Resources website. 

To review the policy, please click here.  Please read this material carefully.  There is much information here, some of it technical, and all of it is vitally important.
