                      EMPLOYEE DRUG AND ALCOHOL SCREENING

It is the policy of the Pitt County Board of Education to provide a drug-free environment for its
employees. To that end, we adopt the Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act, the
Federal Highway Administration's Drug and Alcohol Testing Rules and the Federal Transit
Administration's drug testing rules for employees whose job specification requires them to
work in safety-sensitive positions. All persons employed in safety-sensitive positions are
required to comply with this policy.

In addition, all other offers of employment will be contingent upon satisfactorily passing of a
drug screening test. All applicants considered for employment will be requested to sign a
consent release form authorizing the Pitt County Schools to have its designated clinic,
hospital, or laboratory perform the drug screening test. Applicants refusing to sign the
consent form or whose tests results are an unjustified positive will not be considered for
employment. Additionally, all re-hired employees who have a break in Pitt County Schools’
service for more than 91 days are required to retake drug screening tests.

The cost of the initial drug screening test will be borne by the applicant except in the case of
applicants for bus driver positions, the cost of which will be borne by the Pitt County Board of
Education.
