Morgan County Schools
Bylaws & Policies


The Board of Education believes that quality education is not possible in an environment affected by drugs. It will seek, therefore, to establish and maintain an educational setting which is free from evidence of use of any controlled substance.

The Board shall not permit the manufacture, possession, use, distribution, or dispensing of any controlled substance, alcohol, or any drug paraphernalia as the term is defined by law, by any member of the School Systemís professional staff at any time while on School System property or while involved in any school or Board-related activity or event. Any staff member who violates this policy shall be subject to disciplinary action in accordance with Board of Education guidelines.

The Superintendent shall establish guidelines that ensure compliance with this policy and that each staff member is given a copy of the standards regarding unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by staff and informed that compliance with this requirement is mandatory. Such guidelines shall provide for appropriate disciplinary actions.
