Use of Tobacco on School Property
The board of directors recognizes that to protect students from exposure to the addictive substance of nicotine, employees and officers of the school district, and all members of the community, have an obligation as role models to refrain from tobacco use on school property at all times.
Any use of tobacco products by staff, students, visitors and community members shall be prohibited on school district property. Possession or distribution of tobacco products by minors is prohibited. This shall include all district buildings, grounds and district-owned vehicles.
Notices advising students, district employees and community members of this policy shall be posted in appropriate locations in all district buildings and at other district facilities as determined by the superintendent and shall be included in the employee and student handbooks. Employees and students are subject to discipline for violations of this policy, and school district employees are responsible for the enforcement of the policy.
