Proposal for Student Drug Testing

The Napoleon Area City Schools Board of Education has approved the superintendent investigating the implementation of a student drug testing program. Such a program would provide drug/alcohol testing to grade 7-12 students participating in extra-curricular activities sponsored by the district (such as sports and clubs). To ensure the superintendent has ample input from students, parents, community and coaches, the following steps have been put into place:

  1. Dr. Fogo, the superintendent, will meet with all grade 7-12 students over the week of March 5th – March 16th. Students will be asked to offer their view of drug testing and how a drug testing program would actually be conducted.
  2. Dr. Fogo will hold a public forum on Monday, March 12, 2018, at 7:00 pm in the Jr/Sr High Cafeteria to gather input from parents, students and interested community members.
  3. All head coaches/club advisors will be contacted and their input requested.
  4. A dedicated page and Q&A will be posted on the district’s website. Included will be a link to provide comments, questions or concerns. The Q&A page will be updated with questions as received.


March – Gather input from the students, parents, staff and community.

April – Post a draft Student Drug Testing program outline on the district website and present to the Board of Education for addition refinement.

May – Present a finalized draft of a Student Drug Testing progam to the Board of Education to determine if such a program should be implemented in the 2018-19 School Year.
