Chemical Health Advisory Board

The school and community advisory team must be composed of representatives from the school pre-assessment team established in section 126.034, to the extent possible, law enforcement agencies, county attorney’s office, social service agencies, chemical abuse treatment programs, parents, and the business community. The community advisory team shall:

  • build awareness of the problem within the community, identify available treatment and counseling programs for students and develop good working relationships and enhance communication between the schools and other community agencies; and
  • develop a written procedure clarifying the notification process to be used by the chemical abuse pre-assessment team established under section 126.034 when a student is believed to be in possession of or under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance. The procedure must include contact with the student, and the student’s parents or guardian in the case of a minor student.
