The Meridian School Board conducted a work session Monday. On the agenda were workman's compensation, demographic data and the district's drug policy.
"We want to be sure the board knows what's in the existing policy, but then we have some ideas to include into a revised drug policy," said Superintendent Sylvia Autry. "One would be that all new employees would be subject to a drug test, so before they came on board, we would know that they were drug free."
Autry said workman's comp claims have declined. She also pointed out to the board that demographics show more minority hires in the district over the past several years.
