As the start of the school year approaches, Clear Fork Board of Education members are meeting to make sure loose ends are tied up. A work session was held at the Clear Fork Board Office Wednesday night.

The purpose of the session was to allow board members time to discuss the district's illegal substance testing policy. When and how students will be tested, confidentiality, costs of the tests as well as punishments were discussed.

Random tests would be given to students, drivers and athletes in grades 7 through 12. Board members stressed the fact that they're looking to help, not hurt students who don't abide by the terms of the school's policies. Substance abuse tests will cost around $28 dollars per student. There was also discussion about offsetting costs of a drug-free program, with leftover money from these tests.
