TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Officials in Tuscaloosa City Schools are considering a policy to randomly test students for drugs.

Mike Daria, assistant superintendent of general administration, told the Tuscaloosa City Board of Education on Tuesday that he and several other administrators have been in talks with high school principals about creating a random drug testing policy for students in middle and high school.

The Tuscaloosa News reports that creation of the policy is in its early stages. See the full article here, http://bit.ly/YF22Io.

Daria said officials are considering a policy that would apply only to students who are in extracurricular activities, students who drive to school and students whose parents choose to put them into the program.
