About the Indicator:

School disciplinary incidents involving prescription drugs were obtained by school district, then aggregated to the county level.  Percentages are found by totaling each county's prescription drug-related incidents and dividing them by the total amount of disciplinary incidents for that county. Each incident is counted only once; if multiple reasons per incident were reported, only the most serious reason is counted.

Use this incident type when a student has in his or her possession, and/or is involved in the solicitation or sale of prescription medication that may or may not be prescribed for that student, and the possession is against school policy, consistent with state law.  A drug or other substance identified under Schedules I, II, III, IV or V of the Controlled Substance Act. See 21 USC § 812 (c); and Minnesota Statutes sections, 152.01 subd. 4 and 152.02. The term does not include distilled spirits, wine, malt beverages, intoxicating liquors or tobacco.
