Any student or employee in violation of this policy is subject to disciplinarydrug abuse prevention program action, up to and including expulsion from the District or termination of employment. The decision to take disciplinary action in any instance rests with the Governing Board after consideration of recommendations made by the site administrator and advisory panel.

The possession, use, or sale of alcoholic beverages by anyone on District property is a violation of the California Business and Professions Code 25608, as well as the Student Code of Conduct.  The possession, use or sale of any illegal drug is a violation of state law and any person found in violation may be subject to arrest by federal, state, and local law enforcement authorities.  Criminal prosecution is separate from any administrative discipline that may be imposed by the District.
