NJ school district weighs random drug testing

Parents, some with their high school children, learned about a new proposal in the Livingston, New Jersey, School District: random drug testing of students.

If the plan is approved, athletes and anyone involved in extra-curricular activities would be randomly tested.

Right now, Livingston High School has mandatory "under suspicion drug testing." That has been in place since 1987. If school staff have a suspicion a student is using drugs, they're mandated by the state to send the student for testing immediately.

A meeting on Wednesday night did not have a public speaking portion but parents were asked to write their questions on index cards.
