Chemical Health Policy
Chemical use is a threat to the well being of students—both their safety and health. Every student at Knights Academy has a right to learn. The misuse of chemicals may interfere with the learning environment as well as the welfare of the entire alternative program.
- Students are expected to come to school free from the influences of drugs, alcohol, or other controlled substances. The use, possession, or transference of any controlled substance or paraphernalia associated with the use of controlled substances is a violation of school policy. Students may not have prescription or over the counter medications in their possession. This policy applies to the school building and school grounds (parking lots are on school grounds). Suspicion of being under the influence of chemicals will be written up and brought to the attention of the Program Director and Advisor. Reasonable suspicion may result in dismissal from school.
- Students may not engage in discussion about drug use unless it is part of a discussion led by a teacher.
- Students may not use tobacco or nicotine of any kind in the school building, on school grounds, or at school functions. This includes cigarettes, chewing tobacco, e-cigarettes, or any other product containing tobacco or nicotine.
