School Bus Driver Drug and Alcohol Testing Consortium

Region 6 ESC will act as a fiscal agent between school districts and “Compliance Consortium Corporation” to consolidate drug and alcohol testing and screening in order to meet the testing requirements of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Alcohol & Drug testing requirements for School Bus Drivers. This consortium complies with the regulations requiring all employees who have a commercial driver’s license (school bus drivers) to be tested as follows: pre-employment, post-accident, reasonable suspicion, random (50% annual rate for drugs, 25% annual rate for alcohol) and return-to-duty/follow-up.
