Substance Abuse - Drug and Alcohol Policy
The Chabot-Las Positas Community College District strives to maintain a drug-free and alcohol-free environment.
A student may be arrested, suspended, expelled, placed on probation or given a lesser sanction for good cause and in accordance with procedures consistent with due process for violations of the drug and alcohol policy.
Employees may be arrested, suspended, terminated or given a lesser sanction for violations of the drug and alcohol policy. Employees are required to notify the District of any criminal drug statute conviction for a violation occurring in the workplace no later than five calendar days after such conviction.
The drug and alcohol policy reads: “On college property, the sale or knowing possession of dangerous drugs, restricted dangerous drugs, alcoholic beverages or narcotics as those terms are used in California statutes except when lawfully prescribed or permitted. District/college property includes real or personal property in the possession of, or under the control of the Board of Trustees of the Chabot-Las Positas District and all district facilities whether operated by the District or by a District auxiliary organization.” The policy can be found under the Chabot-Las Positas Administrative Rules and Procedures Manual section 5512(A)(8) and the Drug-Free Workplace provisions listed under section 2315.
Students and employees will be informed of the health risks associated with the use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol, and will be advised of the availability of drug and alcohol counseling, treatment or rehabilitation.
