"For a small district to do this kind of testing would be cost-prohibitive," said Joseph Wilimek, school superintendent for Angels Camp.
At Bret Harte High School
in Angels Camp
, all student-athletes and cheerleaders take urine tests for marijuana, cocaine and other illegal drugs each season, costing the district about $9,000.Checking for steroids would cost an additional $44,000.
That would be enough money to pay for another teacher, Wilimek
said."Right now our priority is keeping staff _ we've had to lay off three teachers and reduce our administrative staff already," he
