Contractors - You must work with your contracting company to schedule your drug and alcohol test within 15 days of the date you are selected for hire.

How do I obtain my drug test results?

Your drug testing results are communicated from the medical facility to DCPS, typically within five (5) business days following the test date. Your employment file will be updated accordingly—it is not necessary for you to collect your drug testing results to provide to DCPS. Once we have evidence that you have cleared the background check and the drug test, you will receive notification regarding your status in the onboarding process.

What happens if an individual does not pass the drug test?

If a candidate does not pass the drug test, they are not eligible for employment in a safety-sensitive position with DCPS for a period of three years.

If an employee does not pass the drug test, they are subject to termination and will be denied subsequent appointment to a position within DCPS for a period of three years.

Which substances does DCPS test for?

The drug test is used to determine the presence of the following illegal drugs/controlled substances – marijuana, cocaine, opiates, amphetamines, and phencyclidine. Applicants are tested for the presence of drugs only. Employees are tested for the presence of both drugs and alcohol.

Who is subject to testing?

DCPS has determined that all applicants and employees in “safety sensitive” positions, both instructional and non-instructional, are subject to testing.

Is there a cost for the drug and alcohol test?

There is no cost to candidates or employees for the drug test. DCPS pays for the full cost of the test.

I have to take prescription medication on a regular basis. Will this cause a positive test?

If the first test result is positive, the testing lab will automatically conduct a second test (from the specimen) to confirm that it is not a false positive result. If both test results are positive, the Medical Review Officer will contact the donor to determine if there is a legitimate medical reason for the positive result.

What do I do if I suspect that a co-worker is under the influence of drugs or alcohol?

DCPS employees are required to report any suspected drug or alcohol abuse on the part of another employee to a supervisor, or directly to the MDAT Team. Reports will be held confidential to the full extent permitted by law.
