MILFORD - (AP) - Milford's school board has adopted a new policy that students are subject to breath testing for alcohol at school functions.

Under the policy, students entering a public school-sponsored dance will have to take a Breathalyzer test. The policy has been adopted as an effort to cut down on teen drinking.

The policy also allows school administrators to test individual high schoolers during the school day if there's reason to suspect they've been drinking alcohol.

School officials say if a student refuses to take the Breathalyzer, the student could be suspended for 10 days.

The Breathalyzers will not be used at sporting and other school events.
