School District One Superintendent Addresses Drug Policy For Teachers

Earlier this week, representatives from the Partnership for a Drug Free Workplace were guests on KROE'S Public Pulse program. A caller to the show wondered why teachers in Sheridan County aren't required to take random drug tests.

Sheridan County School District 1 Superintendent Sue Belish explains that they indeed do have a policy that addresses drugs in the workplace.

Belish said that all of the employees in the District 1's Transportation Department are randomly drug tested. She also said that no tests have come back positive during her time as Superintendent.

drug testing

I totally agree with you coledigger. Anyone who works with children should be willing to be drug tested at random. Congratulations to District 1 for their policy. I'm sure that Sue Belish does a good job of seeing that it is followed. There are many reasons why she was honored with Superintendent of the Year.
All of the people you listed should be very willing to be drug tested. No one in those occupations should be on drugs. You're right on with welfare recipients too!

Drugs are illegal

I don't see a problem with testing everyone for drugs that are on Government payrolls. This comment includes not only teachers but also welfare recipients, law enforcement, politicians, etc.! Drugs cause way too many problems in any community and the more pressure put on users and dealers is in the best interest of all citizens.
