The bill would also allow superintendents to reassign teachers who are facing felony drug charges. Senate President David Williams, the bill's sponsor, says the random drug testing would ensure teachers have kicked their drug or alcohol habits. The provision allowing teachers to be shifted to duties away from the classroom is meant to give parents some peace of mind, according to Williams.
