Drug Related



An incident is drug related if there is evidence that those involved in the incident were under the influence of drugs at the time of the incident; if they admit to using or being under the influence of drugs; if drugs were in the possession of individuals involved in the incident, based on testing or investigation done by a law enforcement officer as a result of the incident; or if the incident is somehow related to possession, use or sale of drugs. Schools are not required to test for drug use.

Data Elements:


If a student admits to using drugs, even if there is no physical evidence, could it qualify as a SESIR incident?

  • Yes, this can be considered a SESIR Drug-Related incident, but no arrest could be made (without the physical evidence). Including these incidents in SESIR gives a more accurate picture of drug incidents on campus and resulting disciplinary actions.
