Board moves forward with random testing student-athletes
By Zach Spadt
Washakie County School District No. 1 trustees moved one step closer to
randomly drug testing students who participate in extracurricular
activities. The policy, which is to be presented during the board’s
April 27 meeting, must pass three readings to become an official policy.
The policy, as proposed, would require students in grades seven through 12 participating in extracurricular activities to submit to random drug testing.
School officials are mulling which methodology to use when testing students for illegal narcotics. Thus far, urinalysis, mouth swabs and hair follicle testing are being discussed.
As the policy stands, 10 students per month would be subject to random drug testing during their respective extracurricular seasons.
Consequences for positive test.
What action to take when a student tests positive for illicit substances was discussed. As the policy currently stands, students who test positive must submit to random testing for a period of 365 days. If a student refuses, he or she will be ineligible to compete in extracurricular activities for one calendar year.
Who should cover the cost should a student test positive was an additional topic of discussion. A urinalysis test costs $65. Requiring students and their families to pay for testing after second or subsequent positive test was discussed.
“They (students who test positive) are done for the year—no questions asked—if they refuse to submit to testing,” Worland High School Principal Kevin Smith said at the meeting.
