The Bartlesville School board has changed its policy on testing students for drugs.

The school will now randomly test middle and high school students who are involved in extracurricular activities.

The board voted down a similar mandate last year. Athletes won't be the only students under the microscope. Students involved in band, choir and academic teams will also be tested.

Similar procedures are already in place in Jenks and Broken Arrow.
