5532 - PERFORMANCE-ENHANCING DRUGS/COMPOUNDS

The Board of Education recognizes that the use of dietary supplements that contain performance-enhancing compounds and/or performance-enhancing drugs poses a serious health risk to students.

Accordingly, no staff member, volunteer, or contractor shall knowingly sell, market, distribute, or promote the use of a dietary supplement that contains a performance-enhancing compound or a performance-enhancing drug (e.g., anabolic steroids) to a student with whom the staff member, volunteer, or contractor has contact as a part of his/her duties. Furthermore, the staff member, volunteer, or contractor shall not endorse or suggest the ingestion, intranasal application, or inhalation of a dietary supplement that contains a performance-enhancing compound or a performance-enhancing drug by a student with whom s/he has contact as part of his/her duties.

Use of a performance-enhancing substance regardless of source by a student is a violation that will affect a student's athletic eligibility and extra-curricular participation, as determined by the Board. A list of performance-enhancing substances developed by the State Department of Community Health shall be updated annually and included in AG 2431. This notice and list shall also be published in the Parent/Student Handbook provided annually.

The Superintendent shall require that the warning notice concerning anabolic steroids as well as a warning notice about dietary supplements that contain a performance-enhancing supplement is installed and properly maintained in each of the Districtís locker rooms or athletic dressing areas.
