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.

However, nothing herein prohibits the staff member, volunteer, or contractor from selling, marketing, distributing, or promoting the use of a dietary supplement that contains a performance-enhancing compound to, or suggesting the ingestion, intranasal application, or inhalation of a dietary supplement that contains a performance-enhancing supplement by the individualís own child. A staff member, volunteer, or contractor may also sell, market, distribute, or promote the use of a dietary supplement by a student as part of an activity that:

 A.does not occur on school property or at a school-related function;

 B.is entirely unrelated to the staff member, volunteer, or contractorís school-related duties;

 C.does not involve any information about or contacts with a student that the staff member, volunteer, or contractor has had access to because of his/her school-related duties.

The Superintendent shall ensure 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.
