Athletes perform best when they are not using tobacco products, alcohol, steroids, illegal drugs, prescriptions or over-the-counter drugs not used appropriately, or any other type of mood altering substances. This district, the Athletic Department, and the Coaching Staff are concerned with the overall health habits of student athletes.
The High School Athletic Code of Conduct is in effect from the first day a student joins a Pioneer Athletic Team and remains in effect for the duration of that season.
A first offense, when substantiated by the Athletic Director and Principal, will result in suspension from active participation in the athletic program and an opportunity for rehabilitation. The student athlete must attend a rehabilitation program assigned by the Eligibility Review Board. Student athletes may then appeal to the Eligibility Review Board for reinstatement to the athletic program. (Appeal meeting date will be scheduled a minimum of 15 days from initial meeting.)
A second offense while participating in athletics at Pioneer will result in suspension form the athletic program for a period of one year (365 days). The student athlete may rejoin the Pioneer Athletic program after (1) serving the suspension (2) participating in rehabilitation program assigned by the Eligibility Review Board and (3) presents to the Review Board for reinstatement. (See Eligibility Certification #9)
