This policy is intended to bring the district into compliance with federal law. The purpose of the controlled substance and alcohol policy is to reduce accidents that result from the use of controlled substances and misuse of alcohol, thereby reducing fatalities, injuries, and property damage.

Implementation of the controlled substance and alcohol policy is effective on January 1, 1996.
