Myra Ford, policy committee chair for the Lansing School District Board of Education called the policy committee meeting to order on Oct. 29 at 1:30 p.m. Then all talk turned to drugs – drug tests in Lansing schools that is. One of the biggest items on the meeting agenda was the policy of drug tests for student-athletes in the Lansing School District. There are two options to the policy, according to the board. Option one is that students enrolled in a sport have to take a drug test prior to their season and this drug test is the responsibility of the parents to administer.
