JLBC POLICY REGARDING ALCOHOL, TOBACCO, AND OTHER DRUGS

(ATOM)

As an educational institution, JLBC Junior Leadership Bootcamp promotes the belief that tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs are detrimental to the healthy development of adolescents. In keeping with this principle, we maintain a policy prohibiting cadets' use of these substances and provide information and support to allow cadets to develop productive lifestyles free of chemical encumbrances.

When filing for admission or upon annual re-registration, both cadets and parent/guardian must agree to abide by and support the standards and give wholehearted cooperation to the JLBC program in upholding and enforcing the standards. Such agreement, signed by the cadets and the parent/guardian, shall be a condition for admission or re-registration of the cadets to the program. Choosing not to sign the consent form by parent or cadet will result in non-admittance or inability to re-enroll. Parents choosing not to allow their cadet or refusal by a cadet to submit to any part of the policy conditions will result in dismissal from the program.


JLBC cadets agree to live within the program's Standard of Conduct framework as stated in the S/P Handbook. While some cadets may not have personal convictions following the standards in the handbook, agreeing to these standards obligates the cadet to assume responsibility for adherence to them, WHETHER ON CAMPUS OR OFF CAMPUS.

JLBC - Junior Leadership Bootcamp basic policy related to cadets use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs is:

Possession of, use, or consuming any TOBACCO product (e-cigarettes) on campus or at any school function (on or off campus) is strictly prohibited. Possession of, use of, or consumption of any tobacco product off campus, at non-school activities, is strictly prohibited.

Possession of, use of, or consumption of any beverage or substance containing ALCOHOL, or being under the influence of such importance, on campus or at any JLBC function (on or off campus) is strictly prohibited. Possession of, use of, or consumption of, or being under the influence of any beverage or substance containing alcohol off-campus, at non-program activities which, in the opinion of the JLBC, impugns the excellent reputation of JLBC, is strictly prohibited. Note: A cadet's involvement in furnishing alcohol of any kind to anyone is a violation of the penal code and will be reported to law enforcement.

Possession of, use of, or being under the influence of illegal DRUGS (including prescription drugs) on campus or at any program function (on or off campus) is strictly prohibited. Any possession of, use of, or consumption of, or being under the influence of illegal drugs off campus, at non-program related activities which, in the opinion of the program, impugns the excellent name of JLBC, is strictly prohibited. Note: A cadet's involvement in the furnishing of prescription drugs, illegal drugs, drug paraphernalia, or look-alike drugs of any kind to anyone is a violation of the penal code and will be reported to law enforcement.

Cadets may be required to submit to substance abuse TESTING if the administrator suspects that the cadets has a history of substance abuse, investigates or observes evidence or signs of substance abuse on the part of the student, or believes that a report of substance abuse, by cadets, parents, or other individuals, may be accurate.

Substance abuse testing shall be done by urinalysis and examination of hair follicles. Multiple tests may be required. Testing that results from the administration's belief or strong suspicion that a student is using any drugs, including alcohol, will be at the student's expense and his or her parent/guardian's. Such testing will be done at a facility selected by the administration.

Confirmed positive results from any substance abuse testing will result in the cadet's immediate SUSPENSION pending an administrative hearing to consider consequences, including EXPULSION from JLBC.


When the administration has a reasonable basis to believe that a cadet may have alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs, cadets' book bags, purses, lockers, desks, or vehicles will be subject to SEARCH. Furthermore, the student will be required to empty their pockets, purses, or billfolds and allow these to be searched.

Cadets expelled from JLBC for violating the ATOD policy who seek re-admittance to the school after the expulsion period must complete a SUBSTANCE ABUSE RECOVERY PROGRAM (SARP) approved by JLBC. The program will consist of the following:

The cadets will undergo a complete substance abuse assessment by a medical/psychological professional selected by the administration that is highly trained in substance and chemical dependency and mental health.

The entire family of the suspended student must also agree to participate in the substance abuse assessment with the student.

The cadets and family must agree to and, in fact, comply with all the recommendations and treatment protocols contained in the substance abuse assessment.

The parents and the student must agree that the student will submit to random drug testing during the recovery program and expulsion period at the request of the administration.

The medical/psychological professional must verify the student has successfully completed the prescribed program.

Cadets who have successfully met the time requirement of the expulsion period, completed the recovery program, and received a positive recommendation from the medical/psychological professional who performed the substance abuse assessment may re-apply to JLBC. A student seeking re-admittance to JLBC will appear before a discipline review committee formed by the HEAD OF SCHOOLS. This committee will make a recommendation to the head of the school. Following the head of programs review of the committee's request, the head of school will submit a bid to the BOARD OF DIRECTORS for final dispensation. The Board of Directors' decision will be final.

Any cadet readmitted to JLBC by decision of the Board of Directors will be placed on probation for the duration of the cadets time at JLBC and may be reinstated to co-curricular and extracurricular activities as defined in the probation contract.
