Drug News

Port Neches-Groves High School principal Marc Keith said the random drug-testing program at his school, which is in its third year, is an effective tool for reducing drug instances on campus.

“I know the data we’ve seen through the years have shown a lot less drug activity,” he said.

Keith said he’s able to track the data through disciplinary reports, which have “greatly decreased since implementing the drug-testing program.”
