Random Drug Testing
The District has determined that the use or misuse of illegal drugs, performance-enhancing drugs, and/or alcohol among students in grades 9–12 is a problem within the schools and community. As an integral part of the community, the District has taken a leadership role and has implemented a Board-approved Katy ISD Random Drug-Testing Program. This program is for students in grades 9-12 as a condition for their participation in competitive afterschool extracurricular activities and as a condition of obtaining and maintaining a permit to drive/park on a Katy ISD campus. The purpose of the Katy ISD Random Drug-Testing Program is to ensure the health and safety of students. It is intended to serve as a deterrent to the use of illegal drugs and/or alcohol by offering students a credible means for resisting peer pressure. This program also affords the District the opportunity to offer support and assistance to any student, who may be using illegal drugs, performance-enhancing drugs, and/or alcohol.
