sounds like a great idea - kids have no business doing drugs !!
Prairie Park Elementary just called and said that they are locking down the school due to an issue with a staffer and their spouse. After the killings in Conn. I think that all teachers and staffers should be drug free. If they are involved with drugs and than go to work their issues will follow them to where our children are.
Leave the kids alone, and test all these drugged up Lawrence USD497 staffers! ASAP!
Arrghh.....Not a good thing to do to kids in High School. Where does this question even come from?? How 'bout a better one....Should Eugenics be re-instated for those whom would ask such a question? Christ....LJW...
Just to tease the kids, let's wait until Kansas decriminalizes weed for us "of age" THEN subject them to testing. Truly diabolical!
Yes it will send the message early they in a post obama america, where they have little rights.
I have no clue whats going on..... cough cough.... Is what it looks like all 4 of them said before they were offered some Burrito King and Scooby snacks. I practically got a contact buzz from these photos.
The florida testing did little. Very few positives and cost a lot more than what they saved. And what are they going to test them for? The classics..pot/opiates/speed blah blah or get in depth and test for steroids, as though they were all training for some kind of body building bikini contest?
Before high schools, I think they should do this for anyone receiving welfare. And on the first offense, they're SOL.
If you are looking for the chronic, high schools are not the place to go.

This is why I home school my kids. I don't want them exposed to the evils of drugs, liquor, evolution, minorities, and female basketball players.
Absolutely. They should also tattoo a barcode on the foreheads of the ones that test positive, so they know who the bad kids are.
More important issues should be in our cross hairs.
I say test! I also suggest corporal punishment for serious breeches of school policy. Most of you mush-minds need a good spanking.
I believe that public schools have a responsiblity to report wrongdoing; however, I don't feel that it is their responsibility to SEEK wrongdoing.
Just think how much it would cost the school district (tax payers) to fight the ACLU on this. Wondering if the teachers are subjected to random drug/alcohol tests? I have seriously wondered about some of them in the past.
Just the lunch ladies
I'd be reticent to encourage testing. It's irreverent of our constitution.
"I think Rockhurst has some if the most hen pecked, helicoptering mothers I've ever seen. It's. o surprise they'd adopt something this intrusive. It's pathetic.' Jack
I'd never send my kid to private school. I'm sure they get a great education, but at what cost? Their soul. I wonder what Ronaldo's opinion on this is. He has kids in high school now.

NO, ABSOLUTELY NOT.
the high school has no right whatsoever to do drug tests on it's students. We presently have a school system that is making serious power-grabs as it is. It is time for our school system to GET HUMBLE!!
It would seem to me that random testing without cause is completely absent of what we have come to call due process. People squawk about lack of due process and then clamor for random testing. But there are many more venues that codify the exemption of due process. I guess that is why we have horrible, horrible people schools.....and guys like BABBOY.
Rockhurst is going to drug test all students next year. They are a private school, so good for them. It will cost the students $60 a year. I guess that ends up getting randomly tested three times a year.

If they catch them...what are they going to do with them? They have no guts, the legal system is stacked against the administration and I would guess most of the parents that don't want the search are guilty themselves. So, in true lawrence form, lets just create ways to waste money and expose the taxpayer to more ways to squander money.
I suppose it is OK if a parent gives the school permission to search the student. If the parent does not give explicit permission it is an illegal search unless the police have a warrant.
I notice that no one over 30 was asked by the J-W. They might have gotten different results at the Senior Center.
That said, I personally do think it's an illegal invasion. It might be necessary, though, if the school has a problem with an abundance of students stoned in class.

Still am convinced. Not a good thing to do randomly to a high High school kid. Geez, how would it feel to be put to something like that alone in front of peers?
One is the Loneliest Number
Start with the administrators.
Wow. Somebody needs to cut back.
I think they should test Doll and the school board. They are the ones that seem to be smokin' crack.
No. It is not a safety sensitive position and violates basic search and seizure rules as well as the fourth amendment.
