Employee Drug Testing
Pre-Employment Drug/Alcohol Screening
The Superintendent may require a prospective employee to undergo a pre-employment drug/alcohol screening. In this case, final selection of a job applicant for a position shall not be made until the applicant has successfully completed a drug and alcohol screening required as part of the pre-employment physical examination.
Applicants shall sign a form consenting to the drug and alcohol testing. The consent form shall authorize release of the test results to the district.
To ensure the privacy of the drug and alcohol screening of job applicants, the district will not use test results for any purpose other than those stated in Board of Trustees policy and administrative regulation. The district shall maintain the confidentiality of screening records and shall not disclose these records unless the applicant has consented to the disclosure or the Superintendent or designee is presented with a court order requiring the disclosure.
All initial screening tests shall be conducted at the district's expense. If an applicant's initial test is positive, a second test shall be administered as soon as possible to confirm the results. This test also shall be conducted at the district's expense.
Upon obtaining a second positive result, the applicant may seek an independent drug and alcohol screening from a recognized medical laboratory at his/her own expense. Any applicant who fails to provide the district with a negative drug and alcohol screening report within five working days of a confirmed positive result shall be determined to have failed the screening and shall not be employed.
Failure to submit to the process or to complete the process shall preclude the applicant from being hired into the position. Disqualified applicants shall not be prohibited from applying for another job within the district.
