Random Drug Testing Policy

The Mercer County Board of Education has approved a Random Drug Testing Policy for both students and staff (certified & classified).
This policy is intended to support the comprehensive educational policies and programs of the District in educating students, parents/guardians, as well as staff, as to the dangers inherent in the unlawful use of drugs. This policy is further intended to provide encouragement to middle and high school students who voluntarily choose to participate on athletic teams, in extracurricular activities, and/or to drive or park on school property to avoid such use and to strive to benefit from effective rehabilitation when such use has occurred.
