The Rock Hill school district is no longer considering a policy for random drug testing among student-athletes. The school board decided Monday not to move forward with reviewing a policy.
In a published report, Board Chairman Jim Vining said budget concerns and a lack of supportive feedback were reasons behind the board’s decision.
The school district would have paid for the tests, an estimated cost of about $50,000 to $60,000 a year, and this did not include money for students who did not have ability to pay.
The Rock Hill school district began considering a random drug testing policy last year.
