Amity superintendent talks drug searches with News 12

The superintendent for Amity Regional Schools spoke to News 12 Connecticut today about possible changes in the way the district's high school handles drug searches

WOODBRIDGE - The superintendent for Amity Regional Schools spoke to News 12 Connecticut today about possible changes in the way the district's high school handles drug searches on campus.

Currently, drug-sniffing dogs can search lockers, backpacks and even cars.

Superintendent Dr. John Brady says that a Board of Education committee is suggesting the dogs be brought near students found to have drugs in their property. If a dog detects drugs on a student, a search would then be performed by a faculty member.

The Board of Education will vote on this proposed change on June 11.
