Drug Testing At Green Valley High To Be First In Clark County

Green Valley High School is set to become the first campus in Clark County to do random student drug testing.

Administrators at the school in Henderson say urine drug testing will be mandatory for student athletes including cheerleaders and dance team members beginning Jan. 28.

Parents also will be able to voluntarily to enroll children who aren't athletes in the year-round testing program.

School Principal Jeff Horn led the drive to institute testing, along with a committee of parents, teachers, administrators and community members formed last Spring.

The principal informed parents during winter break that the school would do more to help curb drug and alcohol abuse.
