Staff Health and Safety (GBE-2) (Drug-Free Workplace)

The Washington County School Board subscribes to the provisions of the Drug-Free Work Place Act for itself and all employees of the Washington County Public School System. A drug-free workplace will be provided by education, record verification, and punishment/required rehabilitation. If the Division Superintendent has reason to suspect an employee is violating drug statutes, then the Division Superintendent is authorized to require a medical test at the school system’s expense. The School Board will be advised if any such test is positive for controlled substances.
