Drug Free Clubs of Ohio
Drug Free Clubs of Ohio is a voluntary club that students can choose to participate in which gives them an added reason to say “no” to drugs. By participating, students agree to random drug screens during the school year. A-Tech will also offer several perks to the students to encourage their participation. We will schedule the first drug test within the first two months of the school year. After the student takes the first drug test, they will receive a membership card from the Drug Free Club.

To participate in the program students and their parents need to complete the membership application and turn it in to the Student Services Office.
