Addendum to the GSCS Student Code of Conduct Rule 7Top of Page
A student suspected of drinking alcohol at school related events or on school property may be asked to submit to a breath test to determine if alcohol has been consumed. A parent or guardian of a student suspected of drinking alcohol will be notified and offered the opportunity to give their consent for the test to be administered. Students who are eighteen years of age or older may give their own consent for the test to be administered.
1. Parent/guardians may select another method to determine if alcohol has been consumed. Failure of the student to submit to testing as requested by the school official may result in an unfavorable inference and appropriate punishment may be given the student if the school official believes that there is sufficient evidence to indicate use, possession, or distribution of any alcoholic beverage or controlled substance.
NOTE: A student violating this rule may be subject not only to disposition under this rule but also punishment under 11(g) and 11(h) of the Griffin-Spalding County School System Student Code of Conduct.
B. A student shall not possess, sell, use, distribute or be under the influence of any substance containing any concentration of tetra hydro cannabinol (THC) (for example: marijuana, hemp, CBD oil, or any other derivative of either) or any other substance set out or controlled under and by virtue of the Georgia Controlled Substances Act or the Georgia Dangerous Drug Act.
