School Board To Discuss Drug Testing

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The recent arrest of a teacher on drug charges has prompted the Kanawha County school board to talk about
drug testing for school employees.

School board members have agreed to talk about the drug-testing policy at the board's next meeting, which is June 21st.

Cedar Grove Middle School physical education teacher Michael White was arrested late last month and charged with four felony counts of possession with intent to distribute controlled substances.

State Police say they found several bags of cocaine and marijuana in his car during a traffic stop near Campbells Creek. He also allegedly had scales and other packaging products used for distribution of drugs in his car and home.

State Police Corporal Larry O'Bryan says White told investigators he was selling the drugs to supplement his income.

White has been suspended by the school board pending the outcome
of the investigation.
