Edmond schools consider drug testing students

EDMOND, Okla. (AP) - The Edmond School Board will hear from parents on a proposal for random drug testing of high school students.

Superintendent David Goin says the board will hold a public forum Monday night to discuss the proposed policy.

A vote on whether to adopt a drug testing policy is not expected before March.

The proposal calls for high school students who take part in extracurricular activities or who drive to school and park on campus to be chosen randomly for testing each month.

Any student who refuses to be tested will not be eligible for interscholastic activity honors or awards given by the school.
