High school students in East Rutherford, N.J., will have to submit to urine tests for drugs this fall, and they could be barred from classes and their names turned over to police if traces of illegal drugs are found, Supt. Alfred Marbaise said. Parents will have to sign a consent form for the tests, but administrators have not decided what to do if they refuse, the superintendent said. “It’ll put parents aware and children aware that we’re not going to take it any more,” said Mary Caso, president of the parents association at Becton Regional High School.
