Catholic high school to start random alcohol tests for students

A suburban high school plans to randomly test students for alcohol starting this fall.

Administrators  at St. Viator High School in Arlington Heights say the test can detect how much a student has consumed in the past 90 days.


According to The Daily Herald, 10 to 20 students will be selected each week for a drug and alcohol random test.

If it comes back positive for alcohol the student will receive counseling.

A second positive test could result in expulsion.

Because St. Viator is a private school administrators do not need public approval for the new policy.
