Monday, August 1, 2022
Italy High School Cafetorium
Beginning in the 2022-2023 school year, Italy ISD will begin offering annual student drug testing as part of our
comprehensive drug-testing program. Drug and alcohol abuse negatively affect a student’s safety, personal life,
health, and academic performance.
With parental consent, students in grades 7-12 who plan to participate in any school-sponsored extracurricular
activities, as well as student drivers, are encouraged to participate. This program will consist of an initial annual
drug test as well as random testing throughout the school year.
The Italy ISD School Board approved Drug Testing Guidelines and consent form can be found at this

drivers, are encouraged to complete their drug testing on Monday, August 1, 2022 from 12:30-4:00 PM in the

Before a student enrolled in 7th-12th grade may participate in any school-sponsored extracurricular
activities, receive a District parking permit, or drive on campus, both the student and the parent/guardian
shall agree in writing that the student shall submit to the initial annual drug test and subsequent random tests
in accordance with the attached guidelines.
