What school systems in the area are doing random drug testing on school personnel?

Pressley Baird


New Hanover County Schools has a drug-free workplace policy in its employee handbook prohibiting employees from using, possessing or dispensing any drug while at school or school-related events. This policy requires any school employee who will drive a bus, including substitute teachers and sports coaches, to undergo drug and alcohol testing, and it also allows the district to test employees for drugs if there is reasonable suspicion that that employee has been using drugs or alcohol.

Both Pender and Brunswick schools have similar policies allow the district to drug-test employees if there is reasonable suspicion to do so and policies requiring that anyone driving a bus undergo a drug test.

In Brunswick County Schools, job applicants are required to undergo a drug test and must receive a negative test in order to be hired by the district, according to school board policy.
