Braintree High School Chemical Health Policy in accordance with the MIAA:
Braintree High School, as well as the MIAA, recognizes the use of chemicals as a significant health problem for adolescents, resulting in negative effects on behavior, learning and development. The abuse of chemicals can affect extracurricular participation and the development of related skills. Other adolescents are affected by the chemical abuse of family, teammates and significant persons in their lives.
The Chemical Health Policy states:
From the first day of school, to the conclusion of the academic year, a student shall not, regardless of the quantity, use, consume, possess, buy/sell, or give away any beverage containing alcohol; any tobacco product; marijuana; steroids; or any controlled substance. This policy includes products such as "NA or near beer". It is not a violation for a student to be in possession of a legally defined drug specifically prescribed for the student's own use by his/her doctor. (Please note that carrying prescription medication is a violation of the Braintree High School Medication Policy. Please see page 19 for further details.)
This standard provides disciplinary equity for all Braintree High School students.
Those students who have violated the Chemical Health Policy will be subject to the following disciplinary consequences in accordance with the Braintree High School Student/Parent Handbook:
Students must be aware that those deemed to be in "constructive possession" might be subject to disciplinary consequences in accordance with the Braintree High School Student/Parent Handbook.
Constructive Possession means possession in which the possessor does not physically have the item on his or her person but is aware that the item is present and is able to exercise intentional control or dominion over it. So, someone who has knowledge of the character of an item and knowingly has both the power and the intention at a given time to exercise control over it, either directly or through another person or persons, is then in constructive possession of that item.
If you are in the presence of alcohol and are aware of its existence, you should take immediate steps to remove yourself from the setting.
Note: These rules are in effect seven days a week, 24 hours a day, from the first day of school to the conclusion of the academic year.
