Lincoln Unified’s board meets Wednesday, and here’s the agenda.
Item 10.02 pertains to changes to the student-athlete drug-testing policy that was adopted last year.
Lincoln Unified is proposing four significant changes. From the agenda:
• Oxycontin/oxycodone has been added to the list of tested substances.
• Steroids have been removed from the list of tested substances.
• The alcohol testing mechanism has been changed from an initial saliva strip followed by a confirmatory urine test to an initial breathalyzer test followed by a confirmatory breathalyzer test.
• The appeal process with the Medical Review Officer (MRO) has been clarified.
All changes have been reviewed and approved by our legal counsel, with the exception of Exhibit C, which will be finalized and posted by Tuesday, September 24.
