Beginning with the 2008 fall sports season, any student-athlete who possesses, distributes, ingests or otherwise uses any of the banned substances on the attached page, without written prescription by a fully licensed physician to treat a medical condition, violates the Creighton Preparatory School sportsmanship rule, and is subject to the following penalties and procedures:
1. A student who is found to have used a substance on the list of banned drugs, either through
random testing or according to the rules of apprehension stated in the Student-Parent Handbook, shall be declared ineligible to participate in Creighton Preparatory School
athletics (both NSAA sanctioned sports and club sports), for one calendar year (365 days)
after the date of the positive drug test. In order to be reinstated after one calendar year, the
student must submit to random testing for the duration of the suspension. A student who fails
a drug test during the suspension shall be declared permanently ineligible.
2. After reinstatement, any student who tests positive a second time for a substance on the list of banned drugs shall be declared permanently ineligible to participate in Creighton Preparatory
School athletics (both NSAA sanctioned sports and club sports.)
3. A student who tests positive for any banned substance is also subject to the general school
policy on substance abuse as delineated in the Student-Parent handbook.
4. A student who tests positive may challenge the finding by following the protocol described in
the Student-Parent handbook.. The original specimen, which will be retained by the lab, will
then undergo a second analysis. If the second analysis is negative, the student will be
immediately reinstated. If the second analysis is also positive, the student will remain
suspended and the student or his family will be responsible for the cost of the second
Consent to Random Testing
Creighton Preparatory School has contracted with the National Center for Drug Free Sport (or an
agency approved by the school) to test certain randomly selected individuals and teams year-round for banned substances. The results of all tests shall be considered confidential and shall only be disclosed to the student, his or her parents and Creighton Preparatory School. No student may participate in athletics unless the student and the student's parent/guardian consent to random testing.
