DITEP Information Sheet and an informational DITEP video on YouTube
- DITEP provides a systematic approach to recognizing and evaluating individuals in the school environment who are abusing drugs or alcohol. The goal is to provide early intervention to reduce the possibilities of crash fatalities and injuries. The DITEP module was derived from the international Drug Evaluation and Classification Program a well-proven law enforcement procedure used to detect and alcohol impaired drivers.
- School administrators and school nurses who take advantage of DITEP are not qualified as drug recognition experts (DRE's), but the training will provide competency for evaluating and documenting those individuals suspected of abusing drugs or alcohol.
- Students who are found to be impaired will not be allowed to drive a vehicle to leave school.
