The Office of Student Life is working diligently to provide current guidance to school-wide support teams across the District to address the rise in substance misuse amid the student population. With the support of Assistant Superintendent Samantha Lott-Velez, the South/West Leadership Team principals were among the first to receive the “Substance and the Law” presentation disseminated by the District’s Student Assistance Coordinators (SACs). The SACs packed a full agenda, from the establishment of a comprehensive program, confidentiality, NBOE policy, and the law. Moreover, the SACs reviewed the appropriate steps and process of reporting suspected substance abuse.
