Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act

The IECC Board of Trustees recognizes the importance of a college environment that is free of substance abuse. The college environment includes students, employees, and other persons participating in District 529-sponsored classes, programs, services and other activities or events. Substance abuse is defined as unauthorized possession, sale, transfer, purchase or use of alcohol, unlawful narcotics, cannabis or any other controlled substance. Substance abuse within the college environment is prohibited. Students and employees involved in substance abuse within the college environment are subject to disciplinary action. Any illegal substance abuse instance will result in involvement of law enforcement officials.

Contractors to District 529 are expected to comply with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988. See Drug-Free Workplace Policy (400.19) in the Policy Manual.

Chronic Communicable Disease Policy
Any case of communicable disease reported to the administration will be investigated. Appropriate action will be taken to protect students and college personnel on the basis of qualified medical advice. Contractors to District 529 will be expected to cooperate in implementing this policy.
