The Purpose of the Random Drug Testing and Substance Abuse Prevention Program (RDTSA) is to promote wellness and a drug-free lifestyle in Manor ISD students. The Licensed Clinical Social Worker leading the RDTSA Prevention Program is responsible for providing drug education counseling for students in the drug testing program for middle and high school students and a proactive, developmental guidance program to encourage all students to maximize personal growth and development.
