The Mobile County Public School System is a Drug and Alcohol Free Workplace.

The Board of School Commissioners will require all prospective employees and substitutes to submit to a pre-employment drug screening. Once you have been recommended for a position, a Human Resources representative will give you a list of facilities where the drug screening can be conducted.

Prospective employees are required to sign a consent/release form prior to submitting to screening. If a non-negative (positive) result is received, the system recommends that a split specimen be sent off for a confirmatory test. Prospective employees will be disqualified for hire if the split specimen confirmatory test is non-negative (positive).

The cost of the drug test is the responsibility of the prospective employee.

All employees are subject to testing for alcohol as well as all illegal drugs. This includes but is not limited to amphetamines, cannabinoids, cocaine, opiates, and phencyclidine. Such tests will be arranged by the drug program coordinator.
