CHICAGO (CBS) — Students will face mandatory testing for drugs and also alcohol this school year, at one northwest suburban high school.

Concerns about underage drinking prompted St. Viator High School in Arlington Heights to add alcohol to its random drug test policy.
The test will use hair samples to determine whether a student has used alcohol in the past 90 days.

St. Viator administrators say random drug testing of students has been ongoing since 2007, and less than 1 percent have come back positive.

“We’re adding this test because we care about our kids and we want them to be the that best God created them to be,” said Corey Brost, St. Viator President.

School officials said the tests won’t pick up trace levels of alcohol from Communion wine.

It's a private school, and everyone knows the policy before they sign up for it.

Yes it's a private school. They are just adding the test for booze, before it was a drug only test.


Even public schools have rules for drinking and drugs, especially if the kids are involved in extra curricular activities such as sports.

Public schools have to test athletes-it's a liability issue for them, these days.

They don't usually randomly test all students, though. It's expensive, and a lot of parents don't like it.
