A drug testing policy for Avon schools is rolling out for the first time this school year

The policy includes 7th-12th graders, and though school does not start until Thursday, August 20, students are already talking about the change

Those who have a parking permit to drive on campus, athletes, and those who participate in extracurricular activities will be screened.

“Certain people are very upset about it,” said Antonia Hadgis, a sophomore at Avon High School.

The testing will happen at the start of each season, and randomly tests will be administered after that.

The tests screen for LSD, alcohol, marijuana, amphetamines, methadone, anabolic steroids, methaqualone, barbiturates, nicotine (tobacco), benzodiazepines, opiates, cocaine, propoxyphene (Darvon), or any substance in U.S.C 802.
