Pre-Employment Drug/Alcohol Screening
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 an individual's privacy, the district shall not use test results for any purpose other than those stated in Board policy and administrative regulation, shall maintain the confidentiality of screening records, and shall not disclose such records unless the applicant consents or the Superintendent or designee is presented with a court order requiring the disclosure.
(cf. 4119.23/4219.23/4319.23 - Unauthorized Release of Confidential/Privileged Information)
All initial screening tests shall be conducted at the applicant's expense. Any applicant who fails to provide the district with a negative drug and alcohol screening report within 48 hours of the offer of employment 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.
Refer to board policy 4020 for drug/alcohol testing of current employees when there is reasonable suspicion of drug or alcohol use.
