School Drug Testing
School Drug Testing Programs
For over 20 years, ESM has randomly tested students and bus drivers in public and private schools for drugs and alcohol nationwide. We help develop school policies, meet with administrators, board members, and deisgn programs that save lives. Our children are so vulnerable to peer pressure to use drugs and alcohol. Plus, they have access to very dangerous drugs from hundreds of prescription medications, heroin, marijuana, acid, xanax, adderall, cough syrup, steroids, alcohol, and more. Unfortunately, we have more suicides, overdoses, and crime in our communities than ever. Our program has proven year over year to give kids a reason to say NO. Thousands of schools natiowide have a program, while others do not. Please call our references and hear why our programs work.
Random Drug Test Selection
Our program uses a software that is a true unbiased third party software called the Randomizer to select students and bus drivers to be tested. No coach, teacher, or administrator can be accused of being biased on a certain donor. However, if a student shows signs of drug use, YES, you can test that person under Reasonable Suspicion guidelines, just like a bus driver. We train you how to do this. The goal is to save lives and change lives. We have schools in very small towns to big cities. Schools test weekly, monthly, or quarterly. Tests are performed on the whole school, by sports, or includes kids that drive to school. This is based on the Supreme Court's ruling over 20 years ago. Let us help you implement a program, or better, a current program to STOP the spread of drugs and alcohol in your school. We recommend that students that fail are given a second chance the next month to be clean, and then the next month. Keep them clean the entire time they are in school so they see the difference. The money spent on our program is more important than anything in the schools budget. We will do whatever is needed to make sure your school can afford some type of program with our company.
A certified collector can be a school nurse, coach, administrator, or third party. The testing is done right at the school on preplanned dates using restrooms at the school, gym, or bus barn. All tests are collected using DOT certified collection procedures that includes:
- Train the nurse and administration
- Chain of custody form with bar codes
- 10 panel test device
- Collection cup with temperature strip
- Samples are sealed, and initaled by the donor
- Shipped via Federal Express for fast turnaround time
- All results are reviewed by certified toxicogist, and reported to administration
- Department of Transporation guidelines are followed to keep your school in compliance.
Medical Reviewed Results
All positive test results that come from our SAMSHA certified lab are considered 100% accurate and defensible in court. We add the additional step of protection by having our AAMRO certified physician with over 29 years of experience review all positive results. Each donor is given 72 hours to produce any prescription drugs from a doctor or pharmacy before a final result is reported back to the school. Many schools have this on file, and this helps speed up the process. This step takes the school out of discussing medical information with donors at all.
