This fall, Taylor County students participating in extracurricular activities could be tested for drugs.
After nearly a full year of discussion and study, Taylor County School Board members approved a random drug testing policy during its regular meeting Tuesday.
The policy was passed by a 3-1 vote, with Board Chairman Tony Davis casting the lone "No" vote. Board members Bernie Cave, Jim Cheatham and Lillian Clark voted in favor of the policy. Board member Gary Porter was absent.
"I'm just as confused as I was at the last meeting," Davis said.
