Drug Testing Policy:

 Testing Standard – The program coordinator shall determine the method of testing to be utilized for each random drug testing event.  However, initial testing will be by urine/hair analysis. 

Testing Procedures– For urine testing, each student will provide a urine sample at the direction of staff in a container provided to them. The collection is unobserved, but to be valid it must meet specimen specifications for color, temperature, and concentration. A student will have a three-hour window to produce a valid specimen. If a student is unable to produce a valid specimen within the specified three hour time-frame (such as from shy bladder, or due to an excessively dilute, off-temperature, or contaminated sample), alternative testing method will be used. (Example: Hair testing)
