My high school did it (not that many samples, though).

I sure as hell wouldn't go there, but it's a private school, they can do as they wish.

This I understand.

This one troubles me a bit. I understand the school is a private institution and can do as they please. But if you have a student with a GPA of 3.0 or higher who never causes any trouble in school that smokes weed you would give him the boot? i can see if the student was caught on campus doing drugs, yeah give him the boot. But a student who makes good grades and is never disruptive in school shouldn't be kicked out of school because he smokes weed or drinks alcohol on the weekends or after school.

Don't like the idea of a hair considering you could have smoked one time and it stays in hair for 3 months. And it should be only students that are screwing up or there is reason to believe they are on drugs.

Excellent idea

Get all the drug scum out of the school. Those kids don't deserve an education.

This has been going on in New Orleans private schools for years. Not some great, new idea.

I don't know the specifics but I believe they can test for about any drug that you've done in the last couple of months with a hair sample.Your right.No alcohol.



They can go back years if your hair is long enough but the standard test is 1-1/2 inches of hair to go back three months.

I know at rummel if someone got caught with bud they would make them snitch and give out a bunch of names and start testing the so called users. All I could do was laugh. If they drug tested everyone at ridgewood you could have kicked out half the high school population.

My sons go to a private, Catholic high school. They have random drug tests and occasional locker and bag checks. Also anything they post on social media that would reflect poorly on the school can get them in trouble up to and including suspension. I am ok with all of it. School has a very involved faculty and fantastic principal.

I taught at a private prep academy, a few years ago. They hair tested students, teachers, admins, and even the board of trustees.

The punishment for a positive wasn't automatically draconian - counselling, rehab, etc., for first offense. It was a good thing because they had a problem with a handful of kids who were ruining their lives by messing with some pretty dangerous stuff (and I think their parents were using, too).

Not when I was in school. I think the only school that drug tested was De la Salle (go figure). The Catholic league would have lost a 1/2 of their athletic teams if they hair tested.

re: Kansas City high school will randomly drug test all their students -hair samples


I understand that a private school can do whatever it wants, but I don't really agree to drug testing every kid.

I don't know, I didn't do anything but smoke in hs, and so did half my hs. We would all be screwed, athletes included

seems incredibly expensive and wasteful. They should use the money on actual education instead of trying to play police detective.

One of the biggest dope heads in my school got a free ride to Tulane to become a Dr.

Thank God he never got tested or his future would have been ruined by none other than the people trying to help him.

ETA: It's a private matter, not a public one. If you think your kid is using drugs then be a parent and test them. Don't shirk off resposibility to the school.

The smartest guy I know smoked every day, and I mean he's a fricking genius. Kinda jealous of it, but not really in a different sense
