TAGBILARAN CITY, May 16 (PIA)--Plano sa Department of Education (DepEd) nga idayon ang pagpahigayon og drug test sa mga estudyante, magtutudlo ug mga personnel niini karong tuig.

Matud pa ni DepEd Undersecretary Tonisito Umali, random drug testing ang himuon sa mga estudyante samtang mandatory drug testing usab ang sa mga magtutudlo ug DepEd personnel.

Giingong ang maong drug testing parte sa pakighiusa sa DepEd sa ginahimong pagsumpo batok sa ilegal nga droga ni Presidente Rodrigo Duterte.

Apil sa ipaubos sa drug test ang mga estudyante gikan elementary ug secondary school, apil na usab ang mga magtutudlo ug mga DepEd personnel gikan sa central, regional ug  Division office.

With the consent of parents or guardians, DepEd will conduct drug tests among students in “a very discreet manner” to prevent traumatizing them,” matud pa ni Umali.

Kun magpositibo sa paggamit sa ilegal nga droga ang usa  ka estudyante, ipaubos kini sa ahensiya sa psycho-social intervention o di kaha i-admit sa usa  ka drug rehabilitation center depende sa degree sa adiksiyon sa bata.

Samtang i-konsiderar sa ahensiya ang awtomatikong dismissal sa serbisyo kun magtutudlo ug  DepEd personnel ang mag-positibo sa ilegal nga droga. (ecb/PIA7-Bohol)
