substantial proportion of the Country’s public school districts have instituted
random drug testing for students in high school. This estimate constitutes a measure
against which any future growth of random drug testing in the nation’s school
districts may be compared and thus of the success of efforts by the Office of
National Drug Control Policy and the Department of Education to support its
adoption. However, many of these districts may be conducting such testing
beyond current Supreme Court sanctions, which limit testing to students
involved in extracurricular activities. Thus, school districts that examine all
students may be placing themselves in a legally unsafe position. Legal issues
aside, rigorous that subject all students to random drug testing would resulted
to eliminate the risk that those who use illicit substances may simply decline
to participate in extracurricular activities to avoid testing.
