SD Senate Votes To Ease Student Drug Suspensions

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

The South Dakota Senate has passed a measure that would reduce the time some students caught with drugs are suspended from sports and other school activities.

Senators voted 32-1 to send the bill to the House.

Current law requires that students convicted for a first drug offense 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 are permanently banned from activities.

The bill would cut the suspension for a first drug offense to 30 calendar days if a student gets assessed and completes any required treatment.

Students convicted a second time could cut suspensions to 60 calendar days by getting treatment.

The bill also requires students to miss some events.
