Greg interviews an administrative panel from Lacey Township School District, including Superintendent Craig Wigley, Assistant Superintendent Dr. Vanessa Clark, and District Supervisor William Zylinski. The Lacey School District has recently addressed a hot topic by conducting random drug testing in their high school. While the school has always been aware of drug testing, they haven’t done random drug testing until fairly recently. Dr. Vanessa Clark explains when they first started discussing testing, only 19 other school districts in New Jersey were conducting random drug tests.
For the district, policy development was the most complicated and lengthy part of the process. “It took a full year of discussion, sit downs and policy development before we were ready for full implementation. January 2014 was our first random drug test,” says Vanessa.
