Drug-Free Awareness Policy
In conjunction with LCC’s Drug-free Awareness Program, all LCC students are notified that the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing, possession or use of a controlled substance is prohibited on LCC grounds as provided by law and as provided in LCC’s Board of Directors Policy Manual, LCC’s Employee Policy Manual, and in this student handbook.
Any violation of this policy will result in corrective disciplinary action in the case of a student and will be referred to proper criminal law enforcement authorities.
All students must become familiar with these policies and abide by them.
Pursuant to requirements insured by the federal government, employees must notify the LCC Office of the President of any criminal drug statute conviction for a violation occurring upon the property of LCC no later than five days after such conviction.
