2. A board of education may adopt a policy, pursuant to rules and regulations adopted by the State Board of Education in consultation with the Department of Human Services, which are consistent with the New Jersey Constitution and the federal Constitution, for the random testing of the district's students in grades 9-12 who participate in extracurricular activities, including interscholastic athletics, or who possess school parking permits, for the use of controlled dangerous substances as defined in N.J.S.2C:35-2 and anabolic steroids. The testing shall be conducted by the school physician, school nurse or a physician, laboratory or health care facility designated by the board of education and the cost shall be paid by the board. Any disciplinary action taken against a student who tests positive for drug use or who refuses to consent to testing shall be limited to the student's suspension from or prohibition against participation in extracurricular activities, or revocation of the student's parking permits.
