    Student Consent and Parent Authorization for Participation in District Drug/Alcohol Screening Program



    • FNF (LOCAL) (STUDENT DRUG TESTING PROGRAM) The District has determined that the use of illegal drugs and alcohol among students in grades 7-12 is a problem of increasing proportions. Information gathered from surveys of the student body and from other reliable sources within the community indicates that such use is prevalent within all segments of the student population. Many of the extracurricular activities offered by the District are considered to be “safety-sensitive.” The District considers allowing students to drive vehicles on campus to be a “safety-sensitive” activity. Since the use of illegal drugs or alcohol may pose a significant threat to the health and safety of all students who participate in extracurricular activities or drive a vehicle on campus, the District has determined to implement a program of random testing in grades 7-12 beginning in August, 2004.

      For Student I hereby acknowledge that I have read the above District Policy FNF(LOCAL) as related to the STUDENT DRUG TESTING PROGRAM. I further acknowledge that I understand the provisions of the policy, and I hereby consent to any such testing as may be authorized by the District in accordance with said policy. I further understand that, because the tests are to be conducted on a random basis, I may be selected for testing more that once each year, and that refusal to submit to such tests may be grounds for discipline as specified in the policy.

      For Parent or Guardian I hereby acknowledge that I have read the above District Policy FNF(LOCAL) as related to the STUDENT DRUG TESTING PROGRAM, and I do hereby consent that my child may participate in any such testing as may be authorized by the District in accordance with said policy. I understand that I may withdraw the authorization for testing at any time upon submission of written notice to the school Principal. I further understand and accept that, upon such withdrawal, my child will become ineligible to participate in any of the activities as may be specified in the policy until such time as authorization to test is restored. Further, I hereby release and hold harmless the Huffman Independent School District and the Pinnacle Employee Testing service, and their trustees, officers, employees, agents, and representatives from any and all liability, claims, damages and costs that may arise as a result of any action as may be taken relative to a positive drug/alcohol test.

    Parent Statement Prohibiting Corporal Punishment

    • A parent has the responsibility of submitting a signed statement to the principal each year if he or she chooses to prohibit the use of corporal punishment with his or her child. A parent may reinstate permission to use corporal punishment at any time during the school year by submitting a signed statement to the principal. Corporal punishment will be administered in accordance with the law, district policy, and the Student Code of Conduct (SCOC). [See FO and the SCOC]

      Corporal punishment will be administered as soon as possible after an offense and will not be administered in anger. The principal or a designee may choose not to use corporal punishment even if the parent has requested its use. Any use of corporal punishment will be documented on a district form. The principal or a designee will inform the parent when corporal punishment is used.

      Paddles used for administering corporal punishment will not be generally displayed and will be under the control of the principal or designee. Corporal punishment will be limited to spanking or paddling and will consist of an appropriate number of strikes based upon the size, age, and the physical, mental, and emotional condition of the student.

      Before corporal punishment is used, the district may give the student a choice between other disciplinary measures and corporal punishment.

    • Medicaid to Schools Program Notification

      Local Education Agencies (LEAs), such as school districts, are eligible to receive federal Medicaid reimbursement for medically necessary services provided to their special education students when the services meet the requirements of the state’s School-Based Medicaid program and are provided in accordance with the students’ IEPs (§300.154(d)(2)(i)-(iii)).

      The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA) and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) require schools to notify parents that the district participates in this program. The district utilizes services ordered in the IEP and the Medicaid identification number, in conjunction with the state Medicaid Agency and our Medicaid billing agent, to receive reimbursements for these services from the School-Based Medicaid program.

      The district’s participation in this program in no way impacts the services being provided to the student nor impacts the family’s Medicaid benefits. At any time, parents can notify the school district in the event they no longer want the district to access student information for the purposes of seeking reimbursements through this program.

      To print a brochure that further explains this program click here.

      By signing below, I acknowledge that I have been explained the Medicaid to Schools Program and that regardless of my student’s eligibility, this will in no way impact my student’s personal benefits or the delivery of services ordered in the IEP (§300.154(d)(2)(i)-(iii)). I understand that the school district may utilize the services ordered in the IEP and the Medicaid identification number, to seek reimbursement dollars available through this program should my student be eligible. At anytime, I may notify the district in the event I no longer want them to utilize my student’s information for the purposes of this program.
