Depends on what drug that school is having a problem with or what the dog is trained for, sometimes they search for all drugs or do it by random

First, they are adopted by the police when they are puppies, then as they grow, they will undergo TRAINING, they will get used to sniffing out drugs, like officers give K-9s different substances of drugs for they to memorize, later they will hide a conceal SAME substance in a Car, if the dog sniff it out, most likely they will stop or bark. Like missing persons, dogs are used to sniff the children's clothing from where they disappear, because they were trained to do that. Hope This Helps :)
