Clinton School Board considers drug testing

CANTON, Miss. —

CANTON, Miss. (AP) — The Clinton School Board may approve random drug testing for 7-12 graders who participate in sports, performing arts and other extracurricular activities.

Schools athletic director Clay Norton tells The Clarion-Ledger (http://on.thec-l.com/12lsvpS ) there are policies to address drug use on campus. He says the system wants to give students more incentive not to use illegal drugs anywhere.

The board reviewed a draft of the policy at its April meeting and will review it again in May.

The proposed policy would cover all sports and activities regulated by the Mississippi High School Activities Association, as well as choirs, student government and honor societies.
