FARMINGTON — The Davis Board of Education will consider a proposed random drug testing policy for student-athletes, cheerleaders and student government officers at its next meeting.

If the policy is adopted, each high school in the district would randomly test up to five students weekly. Consequences for those who test positive would include sitting out games or performances but would not be of a criminal nature.

The board will consider the policy at its meeting on March 19. A final vote is scheduled for the April 16 meeting. The community can view the proposed policy at www.davis.k12.ut.us/Page/57.
