Mount Airy considers random drug testing for grades 6-12

Posted on: 9:57 am, June 27, 2013, by

MOUNT AIRY, N.C. — The Mount Airy Board of Education has outlined plans to implement a random drug testing policy.

The Mount Airy News reports the proposed policy was presented to the school board on Wednesday evening.

It would apply to all students in grades 6 through 12 who drive to school or participate in extracurricular activities.  Parents could also “volunteer their children for participation in the program,” the paper reports.

The idea was brought up in February during a meeting between the School Health Advisory Council and the Mount Airy Police Department.

Board members will discuss the proposal again before making a decision in August.
