The Board of Education recognizes that the misuse of drugs is a serious problem with legal, physical, and social implications for the whole school community.

For purposes of this policy, "drugs" shall mean:

 A.all dangerous controlled substances as so designated and prohibited by Ohio statute;

 B.all chemicals which release toxic vapors;

 C.all alcoholic beverages;

 D.any prescription or patent drug, except those for which permission to use in school has been granted pursuant to Board policy;

 E.anabolic steroids;

 F.any substance that is a "look-alike" to any of the above.

The Board prohibits the use, possession, concealment, or distribution of any drug or any drug-related paraphernalia as the term is defined by law, or the misuse of a product containing a substance that can provide an intoxicating or mood-altering effect on school grounds, on school vehicles, and at any school-sponsored event. It further establishes a drug-free zone within 1000 feet of any facility used by the District for educational purposes.

It shall be the policy of the Board that notice regarding the use of anabolic steroids is posted in each of the District's locker rooms used by students in grades 7-12.
