District begins drug testing for extracurricular activities

Associated Press

O'FALLON, Mo. - Students in extracurricular activities in the suburban St. Louis Francis Howell School District begin mandatory drug testing this week.

More than 4,000 students, or about two-thirds of the district, will be in the first mandatory pool to take random urine tests for illicit substances, including marijuana, cocaine and Ecstasy. Some student-athletes will be tested for steroids.

All students in extracurricular activities are required to be randomly tested. The school board in St. Charles County approved the policy in June to require testing for any student with a parking permit as well. Parents can also choose to put their students on the testing pool list for middle school and high school students.

Middle school students in the district will begin voluntary random testing next month.
