Student Substance Abuse Policy and Program

  • Pensacola Catholic High School intends to be a drug free school. The possession or use of alcoholic beverages, tobacco or other illicit drugs is an illegal act which poses a serious threat to the health, safety, and well-being of students and staff. The school is committed to promoting and providing a drug-free academic environment for students. Therefore, alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs are prohibited on the school premises and at school-sponsored or school-related activities.

    This program ensures:
    • All students enrolled at CHS will be tested under this program at the beginning of the school year. 
    • Thereafter, students may be tested, on a random basis, throughout the school year or may be tested if there is reasonable suspicion that a student has violated the terms or conditions of the Program. 
    • All students are subject to random testing throughout the school year. Since the selection is random, some students may be selected more than once during the school year and others may not be tested through the random selection.  
    • Random testing over the course of an academic year will comprise approximately 25% percent of the student population.

    The goal of the program is to provide a strong deterrence for our youth to remain drug free and to ensure a safe, drug-free academic environment.
