More students at Christian Brothers College High School are saying no to drugs these days and the 161-year-old Town and Country school knows that for sure.
It’s celebrating five years of annual mandatory drug testing for all students.
Jane Eschmann is the school’s assistant principal and administrator of the program at the college prep school.
“In the five years we’ve done this, we’ve had a total of eight students who’ve had to withdraw from school, out of well over 5,000 tests given to students,” she said. “We think that’s a pretty phenomenal number.”
Prospective students and their families are told about the mandatory drug testing. There’s no refusal allowed by students or parents, and no one has ever refused, CBC President Mike England said.
Wow. If mandatory hair samples for drug use ever got instituted at your school, what percentage of the kids would shave their heads?
At least 50%?
