Clubs and Organizations

Students are encouraged to develop an interest and become active participants in the extra-curricular programs offered at DHS.

All interested students are encouraged to apply for the extra-curricular program of their choice

Drug Testing Policy for all Student Athletes

For the purposes of this policy school sports teams, cheerleading squads, marching band, and physically active JROTC units have students performing functions that require athletic stamina and are, therefore, termed student athletes by the Demopolis Board of Education. In addition, all of these groups perform functions that display them as role models.

Policy Objectives:

1. To create and maintain a safe, drug-free environment for all student athletes.
2. To encourage any student athlete with a dependence on, or addiction to, alcohol or other drugs to seek help in overcoming the problem.
3. To reduce the likelihood of incidents of accidental personal injury and/or damage to students or property.
4. To minimize the likelihood that school property will be used for illicit drug activities.
5. To protect the reputation of the school system and its students.
