Unless finances improve, Taylor County students won't be tested for drug use this year.
During the Taylor County School Board's regular meeting Tuesday night, Board members unanimously voted to table drug testing indefinitely. In making his motion, Board member Bernie Cave cited the statewide budget crunch.
"I move we table this indefinitely until the financial crisis is over," Cave said.
The process began a year ago in May when Taylor County High teacher and school culture committee member Debbie Hinton asked the Board to consider a random drug testing policy.
