Drug Testing Supported Before School Board
The West Platte School Board continues to hear from people who are in favor of drug testing at their meetings. At the May 17 meeting, Coach Cindy Bond said she felt like many people, coaches and staff all were in favor of continuing the drug testing program. “You may need to tweak it, but I will be sick if you just throw it out,” she said.
Board member Tracie Kalic said her major concern was the consequences of positive results. “Our policy is not preventative,” she said. “We need to look at the consequences and be truly committed to preventing drug use instead of punitive.” The board is continuing to study the matter, and will set aside time in their June meeting for more input.
