The President/Superintendent shall establish administrative procedures related to medical or psychological examinations of candidates for appropriate positions prior to assuming the duties of the position. Such pre-employment medical examinations shall be required only after a conditional job offer has been made, and shall be required of any candidate for a position for which a pre-employment medical examination has been deemed appropriate. No candidate shall be required to participate in such an examination solely on the basis of the candidate's age or disability.

The procedures may require any employee to undergo a physical or mental examination where such a fitness for duty exam is job related and consistent with business necessity. Such medical examinations shall be at the District's expense and shall be conducted by a physician chosen by the District.
