GREENFIELD — The Greenfield-Central athletic policy on drugs and alcohol is poised to become more strict for the 2014-2015 school year.
The policy underwent a first reading at the board’s regular board meeting Monday.
As the policy is proposed, a student will be suspended from athletics for one year on the first offense unless the athlete opts to undergo rehabilitation, after which the student may be admitted to participate in 75 percent of contests. On the second offense, the athlete will be suspended for one year and reinstated the following year only if treatment is completed and additional drug tests are passed. On the third offense, the athlete will be expelled from athletics for the remainder of their G-C career.
The board will revisit the revised policy at its next regular meeting, March 10.
