SD Panel Votes To Ease Student Drug Suspensions

February 4, 2014, 10:21 AM

SD Panel Votes To Ease Student Drug Suspensions
PIERRE, SD -

A South Dakota Senate committee has endorsed a plan to reduce the amount of time some students caught with drugs are suspended from sports and other school activities.

Current law requires that students caught for the first time with drugs be suspended from school activities for one year, but the suspension can be cut to 60 school days if they get counseling or treatment. Repeat offenders lose eligibility permanently.

The Education Committee approved a bill that would cut the suspension for a first offense to 30 calendar days if a student gets counseling. Some might have to get more treatment before returning to activities.

Students caught a second time would be kicked out of activities for one year, but that could be cut to 60 days if they get treatment.
