Moore-Tech-Drug-Testing-Policy.pdf (14.79 KB)

Moore Tech may perform drug testing:

  • Of any student who manifests "reasonable belief" behavior.
  • Of any student who is involved in an accident that results or could result in the filing of an insurance claim.
  • On a random basis of any student.
  • A student's consent to submit to drug testing is required as a condition of enrollment and the student's refusal to consent will result in failure to be admitted to Moore Tech. Any student who is found through drug testing to have in his or her body a detectable amount of an illegal drug will be subject to discipline up to and including discharge except that, depending on the circumstances of the case and the student involved, the student may be offered a one-time opportunity to enter and successfully complete a rehabilitation program that has been approved by Moore Tech. During rehabilitation, the student will be subject to unannounced drug testing. Upon return to school from rehabilitation, the student will be subject to unannounced drug testing until they graduate. Any test that is confirmed as positive during or following rehabilitation will result in discharge. 

REHABILITATION AND STUDENT ASSISTANCE

Rehabilitation assistance in lieu of discharge may be offered:

  • To any student who has requested rehabilitation assistance, provided that the request is unrelated to an identification of the student as a violator of this policy.
  • To any student who has violated this policy, provided that the violation does not involve selling or transferring illegal drugs, or serious misconduct.
  • A student who is in rehabilitation will be allowed to attend school while undergoing rehabilitation on an outside-of-school basis. A written recommendation for rehabilitation must include a statement to the effect that the student's presence in the school will not constitute a safety hazard to the student, staff or others.
  • A student whose rehabilitative therapy involves drug maintenance, hospitalization or detoxification will not be considered for the exception from suspension described in the paragraph above.
  • A student who is in rehabilitation or who has completed rehabilitation will be allowed to return to school upon presentation of a written release signed by a licensed physician or recognized rehabilitation professional. The release must include a statement to the effect that the student's presence in school will not constitute a safety hazard to the student, staff or others.
  • A student’s academic standing, length of program and eligibility for federal financial aid may be effected by students who cannot maintain satisfactory academic progress and/or students who violate drug laws.

Rehabilitation assistance must be:

  • Obtained through a rehabilitation program that has been approved by Moore Tech.
  • Obtained by the student during times that will not conflict with the student's school time.
