School District 27’s board of education is seeking input through a survey from the public and its stakeholders on a new policy regarding alcohol protocols.
When the revisions to the Community Use of Schools policy occurred, it was identified that a policy on alcohol protocols was required, the board noted on the SD27 website.
Feedback on the proposed policy will be accepted up until Thursday, Oct. 13, 2016.
In the draft policy it states the Board of Education recognizes that schools are primarily for the use of children and supports the philosophy that this use is incompatible with the consumption of alcohol on school district property or at school events where students are present.
Therefore, the policy states, the serving or consumption of alcohol upon properties owned or operated by the Board of Education is prohibited, unless special permission is granted.
