Well here is a school district in Ohio that has a “written” Breathalyzer policy (The Cuyahoga Falls School district ) Can someone PLEASE SEND ME SMYRNA’S ??? Hey 1T do we have one ???
My conclusion: I can’t find Smyrna’s written policy on breathalyzers! It doesn’t mean they don’t have one but Damn!!! Being something so important it should be common knowledge and reinforced once a year (perhaps at the beginning of the schools year) so parents and students know the policy. So if it has been going on for years but the expectations parents should is know is bullshit! As for Smyrna’s super vaguely using the MADD card as some-kind of justification is another bullshit! Smyrna’s communication policy is fractured at best! Smyrna’s Super needs to take a little better ownership is ongoing communication.
The questions and concerns about breathalyzers used as condition to attend after school functions is a debate. Yes we want to protect our kids in school! But in this case it seems more about controlling disruptive behaviors that tend to spoil a good thing for other students! I get it and its great! However, what about disruptions in class that impedes teaching and learning? What about searching all students and students lockers if a gun if found on one student? Then again one could argue such test prior to school events is more social conditioning for America’s future to great a passive society when in comes to encroaching on liberties! Its a tough debate! And the magic system card for those who defend this is, its for the kids and if you don’t support it you don’t care about kids! Just like referendums! Also, why not test on duty school staff at these events! Hell no you’ll be crossing legal and union lines! After all, we’re talking adults not kids! Bullshit!
Hey you members of Red Clay’s School Board! Lets be a little proactive here and revisit yearly notification to parents of such policy if it exist! But not to my knowledge one exist.
Jax how did I do ??
