In accordance with the Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Regulations (34 CFR Part 86) of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (DFSCA) Keystone College hereby advises all students, faculty, staff, guests, and contractors that Keystone College, as a recipient of federal funds, supports and complies with the provisions of the Drug Free Work Place Act of 1988 and the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989. The manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession, use of illegal drugs or other legal mind-altering synthetic drugs including, but not limited to, “Spice,” “K2,” “Salvia,” or “Bath Salts” or alcohol by employees or students on the College campus are prohibited and violations of this policy will result in appropriate disciplinary action.
As part of the Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Regulations [EDGAR Part 86], students and employees are to be notified of the following:
1) Keystone College has a zero tolerance policy for alcohol and drug policy violations. A student’s presence where any aspect of the alcohol or drug policy is being violated, even if he/she is not directly involved in the specific act, constitutes a violation of the alcohol or drug policy. A student who actively or passively supports another’s violation of College policy is in violation of their duty to uphold community standards, including the Student Code of Conduct. Alcohol and illegal drug violations are handled on a case-by-case basis. The College disciplinary process may be the most appropriate method of disposition based on the attendant circumstances of each case.
The College recognizes that there are serious health risks, behavioral problems, and legal consequences associated with the abuse, irresponsible use, and/or illegal use of alcohol or drugs. Therefore, all members of the campus community are expected to understand that alcohol or drug use is inconsistent with the mission of the College. All students are expected to abide by local, state and federal laws, along with the Student Alcohol and Drug Policies of Keystone College.
