Lake Washington School District (LWSD) recently reached an agreement with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) on a new three-year contract.
Notice to Employees
YOU ARE HEREBY NOTIFIED that it is a violation of the policy of the Lake Washington School District for any employee to unlawfully manufacture, distribute, dispense, possess or use on or in the workplace any other controlled substance, as defined in schedules I through V of Section 202 of the Controlled Substance Act l(21 U.S.C. 812) and as further defined by regulation at 21 CFR 1300.11 through 1300.15.
"Workplace" is defined to include any school building or any school premises; any school-owned vehicle or any other school-approved vehicle used to transport students to and from school or school activities; off school property during any school-sponsored or school-approved activity, event or function, such as a field trip or athletic event, where students are under the jurisdiction of the school district where work on a federal grant is performed.
YOU ARE FURTHER NOTIFIED that it is a condition of your continued employment on any federal grant that you will comply with the above policy of the school district and will notify your supervisor of your conviction under any criminal drug statute for a violation occurring in the workplace. Such notification shall be no later than 5 days after such conviction.
Any employee who violates the terms of the school district's drug-free workplace policy may be suspended, discharged, or nonrenewed in accordance with the provisions of the board policy and state law.
An employee may be required to satisfactorily complete a drug rehabilitation or treatment program approved by the board, at the employee's expense, as a condition of eligibility for reinstatement. However, reinstatement of an employee who has violated the drug-free workplace policy is not guaranteed, nor does the school district incur any financial obligation for an employee's treatment or rehabilitation.
