CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
Three Cleveland-area Catholic high schools announced Tuesday plans to launch a wellness initiative that will focus on keeping students well and drug-free through a combination of education, assessment and support.
As Catholic schools focused on the education and welfare of the whole person, Gilmour Academy in Gates Mills, St. Edward High School in Lakewood, and Saint Ignatius High School in Cleveland jointly announced the initiative.
They have retained the services of Psychemedics Corporation of Boston to conduct periodic drug assessment of students (grades 9-12), using a non-invasive hair sampling procedure.
The process of sampling will begin next fall with assessment of all students, followed by periodic random tests throughout the school year.
