In compliance with instruction from the higher TESDA Office, Dipolog School of Fisheries submitted all its employees into a “ drug testing” conducted on November 11, 2016 at the school.
There were a total of 69 employees of the school that includes contractual workers, the test was conducted by the AGAPE Health Care Center duly accredited by the Department of Health and ended up with 100% of negative results.
The procedure was conducted through a random collection of urine samples and a finger scanning thereafter.
The initiative of “drug test” is also in consonance with the national government’s program in eradicating drug abuse within the government offices and institutions.
In a Memorandum issued from the Regional Directorate of TECHNICAL EDUCATION AND SKILLS DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY, dated December 5, 2016, DIRECTOR LORENZO G. MACAPILI gratefully acknowledged to receive the result of drug test showing negative results to all its employees of the school.
