Can my school terminate my employment for drinking off the clock then going to a basket ball game as a spectator ?

Since you work for a school, you are probably a public employee and probably a union member. That being the case your employer must have "good cause" (or something along those lines, depending on the actual term employed in your collective bargaining agreement) to take any adverse action. So, you should be contacting your union representative to discuss the conduct and how it fits in with the provisions of the union contract governing discipline. But, drinking at any school function is problematic; and showing up at a school function in a state that leads people reasonably to suspect you've been drinking is problematic. If a student did that, they'd be in trouble. If an adult school district employee did that, there are obvious issues.
