Promote a safe, healthy and substance free environment to support student development and academic achievement; 3. Provide a mechanism for the appropriate identification of substance use and related issues, and early intervention among students; 4. Provide protocols regarding substance use and related infractions; and 5. Provide support services to students with substance use disorders, and legal
