Do you have a drug testing policy?
Yes, De La Salle does have a drug testing policy. The main goal of De La Salle’s drug screening is to ensure that the school is a safe learning environment. Out of concern for all the students and the larger community of New Orleans, De La Salle seeks to deter any serious drug problem by helping to ensure that no student at the school is using illegal drugs. Psychemedics Corporation, exclusively, is used by De La Salle for its hair analysis drug test. During the school year, all students are screened for drug use at least one time. Students are selected daily for testing.
