A school in southeastern Indiana is handing out more than just grades.

FOX News Radio's Lilian Woo reports:

Some parents of fifth and sixth graders at Sunman Dearborn Intermediate School are getting kits so they can test their children for drug use. The test's voluntary and results not shared with the school.

The Dearborn County Prosecutor, who says he has tested his own children, believes preventative drug testing can help open dialogue with children about substance abuse issues.

Each kit contains tests for marijuana, methamphetamines, cocaine, painkillers and other drugs.

One church which gave out kits back in May, says they had 600 visitors.
