GEORGETOWN, Texas -- The Georgetown Independent School District is changing the punishment for first-time offenders of its drug-testing program. They randomly screen students participating in extracurricular activities.
If a student tests positive for drugs like marijuana or cocaine once, they will not be suspended. However, their parent or guardian must meet with school officials.
The student must attend 12 hours of substance abuse counseling over three months, and they must submit to regular drug tests for the rest of the year.
