I remember the scoliosis tests. A letter went home about it a week before, and if your parents said no, then you didn't have to do the screening, but it was recommended that you visit your dr to be checked. We were permitted to wear a bra, and they recommended us to wear a baggy shirt that we could just pull up the back for privacy, and it was with the female school nurse. Most of us didn't wear bra's yet, but I know me and all my friend's did on that day. I didn't have scoliosis, but the nurse did spot some abnormal moles on my back and she called my mom to let her know that they should be looked at in case they would become cancerous.
I feel so lucky that my school respected us that much. I know they would never do a strip search, but they would call you to the office. If another student blamed you for something, they would call both into mediation and call your parents in if there were any suspicions. They would also periodically have the drug dogs come in. (I don't think they ever found anything, other than one time there was a Junior class bake sale to benefit prom, and the dogs went nuts at one guys locker. Turns out he had peanut butter cookies in there and the dogs went nuts...lol)
