Public hearing scheduled on alcohol, drugs policy

The county Board of Education will hold a second public hearing on proposed changes in the policy on alcohol and drugs.

The board seeks public responses to changes recommended since the announcement of the first public hearing, in particular the definition of "constructive possession," applied to students who find themselves in circumstances where they know that drugs or alcohol are present, have access to possess the drugs or alcohol, and do not remove themselves from the situation.

Penalties for those students are the same as for those guilty of "possession."

Those interested in testifying are asked to sign up in advance by calling the administrative assistant at 313-7197 and to submit 15 copies of their testimony at the hearing.
