Board keeps drug-testing program
By: Michelle Davidson, KY3 News
MARSHFIELD, Mo. -- The Marshfield School Board got an earful
on Monday night about its new policy of randomly testing some
students for drugs. Speakers on both sides of the issue laid
out their positions.
It's not just the athletes who face drug testing to stay in
the game. Junior high and high school students who participate
in band and other extracurricular activities also can be
The school board approved the new drug testing during the
summer. The deadline has passed now for parents of Marshfield
students to check either yes or no to let school officials
randomly test their children. Only students whose parents
approved the tests may participate in extracurricular

High school Principal Jan Hibbs says, while screenings have
not begun, the policy has already made a difference.
"I feel like we owe it to our student body population and
community to say no," said Hibbs.
School officials will test students involved in sports, band,
and other activities every two weeks during the school year.
Ten high school students, two junior high students and one
teacher will be asked, at random, to submit samples for
A recent national study found school drug testing does not
deter drug use. The study involved 76,000 students nationwide
but Marshfield school officials hope it will work for them.
The school board didn't take any action to change the policy.
