Board of Education is set to vote on the proposed alcohol detection policy Tuesday night during the regular meeting. The policy was introduced by Superintendent Edward Ehmann during the April 24 board meeting.
The policy states that "any student for whom there is a reasonable suspicion of the use of alcohol before or during the school day, prior to or during an extra-curricular, interscholastic, or other school-related function, whether condusted on or away from school property, may be required to submit to a breathalyzer test."
Policy 5290 also states that the district does not intended to conduct random student testing. If implimented the policy would be geared towards deterring students from using alcohol while at school or school functions.
