Students found to be in possession or under the influence of alcohol or other substances at school, or school events, are in violation of NPS drug/alcohol policy. For a first-time suspension, the student has the opportunity to reduce the number of days of suspension by meeting with the Director of Guidance and Counseling. The parent(s) and student may choose the Alternative to Suspension Program (ASP), which offers eight hours of drug education/counseling. A requirement of the suspension reduction is that the parent(s) attend with the student. These classes are offered through Norman Addiction Information & Counseling (NAIC).
If the violation was for sale or distribution of alcohol/drugs, the suspension cannot be reduced. However, the student and parent are still given the opportunity to attend the ASP sessions.
