Teton County Considers Student Alcohol Screenings

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Teton County school officials are considering screening students for alcohol before letting them in to dances and sporting events.

The proposal calls for waving an alcohol wand around students at voluntary after-school events. The wands can detect if someone has been drinking but not how much.

The Jackson Hole Daily (http://bit.ly/A9P2ue ) reports that about 30 people attended a workshop on the proposal Wednesday. Seven parents spoke in favor of it.

Under the proposal before the school board, students who test positive for alcohol would be wanded again after 15 minutes. If they test positive again, they would be detained and could face criminal charges. Administrators would call their parents to come pick them up.

Administrators would also call the parents of any student who refused to be tested.
