CHARLESTON COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – The Charleston County School District will continue a school safety measure that includes a ‘Random Search Program’ for the 2019-2020 school year.

The goal is to keep students from bringing weapons and contraband to school or school-sponsored activities.

Charleston County School District implemented the program during the 2018-2019 spring semester and plans to continue the program for the full year.

The searches, which will be primarily used in high schools, includes a search of people and their personal belongings. They will be selected based on pre-determined systematic pattern or guideline.

Although this program is primarily used in high schools, some components may also be seen in middle schools, according to the district.
