Drug Testing of Student Athletes
It is the policy of the Franklin County School Board, whenever it is allowed by Tennessee State Law, to conduct random drug test of athletes.
All Students in grades 6th through 12th desiring to participate in school-sponsored athletic events may be required to submit to drug tests. This includes cheerleaders and all members of the athletic teams' support staff such as managers, equipment keepers, etc.
Any student who refuses to submit to the drug screening will not be permitted to participate in any athletic practice or competition for the duration of the particular sport season; furthermore, the noted consequences for a FIRST POSITIVE OFFENSE (as stated in board policy 6.3072 above) shall be utilized. Any attempt to falsify the results of the drug test or present a "cold specimen" will be considered a "Positive" result for any, and all, students involved.
