Gooding Joint School District No. 231
Extra- and Co-Curricular Chemical Use
Extracurricular and Co-curricular activities are subject to the supervision and regulation of the District. Participation in extracurricular or co-curricular activities is considered a privilege; not a right. Students participating in extra- and co-curricular activities, whether sponsored by the IHSAA or not, shall not use, have in possession, sell, or distribute alcohol, tobacco, or illegal drugs, or abuse prescription or non-prescription drugs during their extracurricular seasons.
These rules are in effect twenty-four (24) hours a day. If a student is charged with possession, or is seen using tobacco, alcohol, or illicit drugs, the student will forfeit the privilege of participating in accordance with the activities and student handbooks.
This policy applies to middle and high school students who are involved in the extra- and co- curricular activities.
This policy is in effect each school year from the date of the first practice for fall activities until the last day of school or activities, whichever is later. Violations are cumulative, through the student’s period of attendance in grades 7-8 and in grades 9-12. The Administration shall publish the participation rules annually in the activities and student handbooks.
Student and Parent/Legal Guardian Due Process
If a determination is made that a student has violated this policy, the student and parent or guardian shall be notified of the violation by telephone where possible and also by mail. Also, at this time, the student and parent or guardian shall be notified of the type of discipline that will be administered.
APPEAL PROCESS: Any parent or legal guardian and student who is aggrieved by the imposition of discipline shall have the right to an informal conference with the principal, for the purpose of resolving the grievance. At such a conference, the student and the parent shall be subject to questioning by the principal, and shall be entitled to question staff involved in the matter being grieved.
