LA CRESCENTA — Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich fielded some probing questions from Crescenta Valley High School seniors Friday during a planned event that happened to take place days after a Los Angeles Times article highlighting his discretionary spending. The students, all in government class this semester, had reviewed recent stories by The Times that spotlighted some of the millions of dollars that the five county supervisors can spend at their discretion every year without a public vote or discussion.

The decision to implement a voluntary drug testing program for students at Crescenta Valley High School, where the number of drug-related incidents is far higher than anywhere else in the district, was a sad commentary on the challenges today’s youth face. And for a school known for its academic and athletic prowess, that it should have to resort to this program is a testament to the gravity of the problem, and the community’s resolve to address it head on. In the last two years, 24 students have been expelled at the high school, with another 57 suspended, for drug- and alcohol-related behavior, Glendale Unified administrators said.

GLENDALE — A voluntary drug testing program will be introduced at Crescenta Valley High School next semester to address drug-related behavior among students. The program is experimental, and parents can opt out at any time, school officials said. A letter will be sent home to families for enrollment. Participating students may decline to give a sample, and parents would be notified of their child’s decision. There are no consequences for a positive test. Students who test positive for drugs will not be suspended from school or athletics because the results are confidential, Crescenta Valley High Principal Linda Evans said.
