Plainwell Closer To Drug Testing Students
Just over a year ago there was speculation that Kalamazoo area schools might be thinking about drug testing students. At the time Clark County in Indiana had begun the process of drug testing students involved in extracurricular activities like sports, band and those who are allowed to drive to and from school. Apparently, ten students will be selected at random each quarter and tested for ten drugs that teens are most likely to use. By the way, the cost will come from parking fee funds at the school.
Now, a year later that process has expanded to many other parts of the country and is being discussed in Plainwell. mlive.com reports that the Board of Education is discussing whether students that want to play sports or join clubs, etc. may soon be subject to randomized drug testing for nicotine, marijuana and other drugs.
