Safe and Drug Free Schools

Safe and Drug Free Schools

It is important that all parents, staff, and students understand that, by district policy and state and federal law, no firearms/dangerous weapons are permitted at any school facility (including buses), or at school sponsored events. (RCW 69.50.204 Schedule 1); (20 U.S.C. 3161 et seq. Drug-Free School and Communities Act of 1986).

Port Townsend School District recognizes that the abuse/use of alcohol, narcotics, and other drugs is a societal problem. Within the context of a school, use/abuse represents a health danger, disrupts the educational process, contributes to behavior problems, often results in diminishing academic performance, and can prevent the fullest physical, intellectual, and emotional development of each student. Programs of education, prevention, intervention, and after care are supported by Port Townsend School District, in collaboration and cooperation wth public and private agencies. Intervention and corrective actions for students are listed in Policies 3200 and 3241.
