Drug testing - it’s not something you want to think is necessary, and maybe it isn’t. But West Platte has done it for several years.
The members of the school board have a lot of concerns about it, and voted recently to suspend the program. They’re in the middle of a research project to help them decide what the program will be in the fall, if revived.
If you attended school board meetings during what I refer to as “The Troubles,” (2012-13) you might be surprised at the difference in the way school board meetings are run now.
If you have something to say about anything, the board is respectful, attentive and inquisitive. When President Ron Rowe says “Regardless of your opinion, you will leave here in good standing with the board,” he means it.
So if you support drug testing, or you don’t, feel free to make your opinion hear. You can also write letters to the board, care of the central office.
