PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) — Officials at Pittsburg High School are seeking more input from parents before advancing a proposed drug-testing policy for any student participating in extracurricular activities.
The Joplin Globe reports that the policy would require students and parents at the southeast Kansas school to sign informed-consent agreements before the students can participate in activities. The agreement would make students eligible for random drug tests.  Pittsburg High School activities director Doug Hitchcock says only about 20 people showed up for a session this month to discuss the proposal. Another meeting has been set for April 3.  Hitchcock said administrators want community and parental input before sending a final version of the proposed policy to the school board for consideration.
