Wamego school district approves new drug testing policy

WAMEGO, Kan. (KSNT) – Wamego School Board members approved a new drug testing policy Tuesday night that will affect 8th through 12th graders.

It will allow drug testing of students in USD 320. This comes after surveys showed the district’s average drug use is higher than the county and state’s averages.

Students will submit a sample of their hair for the tests. Parents will be notified a week later.

The policy will start during the 2017-2018 school year.
