A first violation will reportedly result in a meeting with a parent or guardian, counseling and a 30-day parking pass revocation. Students will be able to shorten the revocation through additional counseling and activities.
The district says students and parents will have to sign a contract concerning the policy before they are eligible for a parking permit.
District officials claim the change will not cost them money.
Students will be responsible for both purchasing the $20 parking permits and also paying $25 for a baseline drug test.
They may then be required to submit to random drug testing or testing due to “reasonable suspicion.” The district says students’ initial drug test payments will cover these additional tests.
School officials say students who register for a parking permit and fail to pay for both the permit and drug test before Sept. 1 will be subject to fines and towing for parking on campus.
Students can go to the school's website to register and pay for the drug test, then sign up for a time to complete the test.
Those who take a baseline drug test for an extracurricular activity for the 2017-18 school year will not be required to take an additional test to park.
