Nacogdoches ISD to hold meeting on new drug testing program
Thursday, March 21, 2013 - 5:55pm

Using drugs or alcohol could mean not participating in extracurricular activities or to parking on campus for Nacogdoches High School students next year.

Parents and students can learn about the 2013-14 drug testing program and the harmful effects on the body, as well as one’s extracurricular life, during one of four informational meetings. Participants in extracurricular activities are required to attend one informational meeting prior to participation in the fall of 2013.

The first meeting is set for 6 p.m., Tuesday, March 26, at the NHS auditorium. Other dates, at the same time and place, include Thursday, May 30, Thursday, Aug. 1 and Thursday, Aug. 22.

The NISD school board approved the policy in 2012 for a mandatory student drug testing program. Those who will be subject to the policy are, “Any student in grades 9-12 who chooses to participate in school-sponsored extracurricular activities or receives a permit to park a vehicle on school property,” according to the policy.

For more information, attend one of these meetings or call 569-5000 ext. 8876.
