Discussion Topics On Drugs & Bullying At School

WHY YOU SHOULD “TALK ABOUT” DRUGS AND BULLYING REGULARLY

DISCUSSION AMONG YOURSELVES of drugs and bullying at school is the first step in dealing more effectively with these two difficult topics.   School officials, parents and students need to TALK WITH EACH OTHER about  “drugs” and “bullying” at school.   They can do this both in person and online.  Opening up channels of communication is a good way to start developing policies and procedures.  The DISCUSSION TOPICS presented in this newsletter are designed to make you think about drugs and bullying with an eye to developing policies, procedures and discussion forums.

STUDENT DRUG USE DISCUSSION TOPICS

1.  Do you think RANDOM DRUG TESTING decreases student drug use at school?

2.  Does you school district use BOTH random drug testing along with drug awareness and prevention programs?

3.  Has your school district checked with local courts about establishing a school district and drug court type program?

4.  Is your school district working REGULARLY with local law enforcement officials to develop policies on preventing drug sales at school?

5.  Does your school district have a clear investigation procedure on handling drug situations at school?

6. Does your school district have a clear policy on when a student will be either suspended or expelled from school or prosecuted in court for drugs?

7.  If you are part of a PARENTING GROUP, does your agenda include discussion of drug awareness and prevention topics with your children?
