Drug Testing in WI Schools?

Wisconsin high school students participating in extracurricular activities, like sports and band, would be subject to random drug testing under legislation being drafted by a Republican lawmaker.  

The bill would also require random testing for students who want to park vehicles on school grounds. 

Rep. Joel Kleefisch, R-Oconomowoc, said that when lawmakers reconvene next year he will introduce a bill that requires private and public schools to have policies requiring random drug testing for students participating in voluntary activities. 

The bill also would require the state Department of Public Instruction to develop a model policy to guide school districts.
