VICTORIA, TX (CNN) - A school district in Victoria, Texas is considering drug tests for middle and high school students.

School board members are looking into starting a drug-testing program for 7th through 12th graders.

The program would start this upcoming school year and would only affect students who are involved in extracurricular activities or park their cars on school.

The test would be performed by swabbing the mouth of the student.

The superintendent says he believes this is the best route to keep students from doing drugs.

Although the program would cost the school district around 20 to 25,000 dollars, parents think it's a good investment.
