Programs for voluntary, random testing for controlled substance and alcohol use in public schools. Requires the Board of Education, in consultation with the Office of the Attorney General, to promulgate regulations governing programs for voluntary, random testing for controlled substance and alcohol use by students in public schools. Local school boards may approve the implementation of a voluntary, random testing program in the school division pursuant to such regulations, and each public school may determine whether or not it will participate in the program. Participating schools shall administer the programs in which students shall participate on a voluntary basis only, provided consent from the student or his parent or guardian is obtained. The costs of the program shall be borne from fees paid by participating students and from other funds that may be appropriated or received for this purpose. No state or local basic aid funds shall be expended on these programs. Individual test results are disclosed only to the student and his parent or guardian; comprehensive test results that do not identify individual students shall be available to participating schools and the division superintendent. The Board shall promulgate regulations pursuant to the Administrative Process Act, including certain provisions addressing student and parental consent for program participation; confidentiality of test results; agreements between participating schools and companies providing testing, analysis, and data compilation services; provisions of relevant state and federal laws, and constitutionally protected individual rights.
