Struthers BOE approves drug testing for athletes



Published: Tue, July 16, 2013 @ 9:50 p.m.

STRUTHERS

Beginning this fall, Struthers City Schools will implement mandatory drug testing for all student athletes in grades seven through 12.

The board of education approved the drug-testing policy as an appendix to the existing athletic department handbook at its regular meeting Tuesday, which also functioned as an open forum for community members.

“It was a long conversation, but I’m very happy that the board took a step forward,” said schools Superintendent Joseph Nohra, who added that the district will not incur any cost for the drug testing. “It’s for the health and well-being of our kids.”

Under the new policy, all students involved with any athletic extracurricular programs, including cheerleading, will be drug-tested through the Toledo-based Great Lakes Biomedical within the first two weeks of their respective seasons.
