Drug and Alcohol Prevention Program

The goal of Sparta High School is to work within our community for the prevention of drug and alcohol use. To that end, prevention information is available through my office, and in connection with, The Center for Prevention and Counseling in Newton, NJ. 

Please know that you and your child will have complete confidentiality and referral services if you access me directly prior to any infraction of school rules. No discipline will be imposed.

Should your child be requested to have drug/alcohol testing done through the discipline office, we recommend that you use this Center. They will perform not only the testing, but also a full evaluation including recommendations for counseling and rehabilitation programs.

Sparta High School will require that your student be involved in some form of rehabilitation should he/she test positive for drug or alcohol use. This may include: individual or group counseling, school group involvement, community service or a combination. Should the student be suspended, I will attend the re-entry meeting to discuss possibilities and to provide ongoing school support for your child.
