Rock Hill Schools drop idea for random drug testing of student-athletes

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.
