All Wisconsin high school students participating in extracurricular activities would be subject to random drug testing under legislation being drafted by a Republican lawmaker.
The bill would also require random testing for students who want to park vehicles on school grounds.
Rep. Joel Kleefisch, R-Oconomowoc, said that when lawmakers reconvene next year he will introduce a bill that requires private and public schools to have policies requiring random drug testing for students participating in voluntary activities.
Both public and private schools can already conduct random drug tests on kids participating in extracurricular activities if they choose to do so. It is a tool in their arsenals if they deem it necessary to use it. We should not have an unfunded state mandate forcing them to do so. This is especially the case for private schools.
