Catholic school to test students for alcohol

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS (AP) — A Catholic high school in suburban Chicago says it'll begin randomly testing all students this fall to determine if any of them have been drinking alcohol.

The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald (p://bit.ly/12UAOiV) reports that St. Viator High School in Arlington Heights says the tests will be done with a hair sample. Officials say that can determine if a student has consumed alcohol in the past 90 days.

The testing was the idea of the school's president, the Rev. Corey Brost. He decided to recommend it after reading an article about a private school in New York that does it.

That school uses the same company for alcohol testing that St. Viator has used to test students for drugs since 2007.

St. Viator administrators approved the testing.
