The White Hall School District has been drug testing students in extracurricular activities for over twenty years. For the past five years, the district has partnered with a private drug company to do all drug testing. Testing dates are scheduled 6 to 8 weeks in advance. Students' names are randomly drawn in extracurricular activities. In the event a student cannot produce a sample, they are offered water and all the time necessary to produce a sample. Students are not required to submit a hair sample unless the student has given verbal permission. In the future, if a student volunteers a hair sample, the district will require a parent's verbal permission.
