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.
Smoking or any other use of tobacco products shall be prohibited on school district property.
Tobacco includes, but is not limited to, cigarettes, cigars, snuff, smoking tobacco, smokeless tobacco, nicotine, nicotine delivering devices, chemicals or devices that produce the same flavor or physical effect of nicotine substances: and other tobacco innovation. This shall include all district buildings, grounds, and district-owned vehicles. Nothing in this policy is intended to preclude the use of products necessary for legitimate cessation programs.
Notices advising district employees, students, and patrons of this policy shall be posted in appropriate locations in all district buildings and at other district facilities as determined by the superintendent. Employee and student handbooks shall include notice that using tobacco on school property is prohibited. Employees and students are subject to discipline for violations of this policy, and school district employees are responsible for the enforcement of the policy.
