Use of Tobacco on School Premises

Use of Tobacco on School Premises

The Board of Education believes that the right of persons to use tobacco and non-tobacco nicotine products must be balanced against the right of those who do not use tobacco to breathe air untainted by tobacco.

In order to protect students and employees who choose not to use tobacco from an environment noxious to them and potentially damaging to their health, the Board prohibits the use of tobacco on District premises (owned or leased), in District vehicles, at all school sponsored events and in all school buildings owned and/or operated by the District.

For the purpose of this policy, “use of tobacco product” means any of the following: the carrying by a person of a lighted cigar, cigarette, pipe, or other lighted smoking device; the inhaling or chewing of a tobacco product; the placing of a tobacco product within a person’s mouth; and/or the smoking of electronic, “vapor,” or other substitute forms of cigarettes, clove cigarettes or other lighted smoking devices for burning tobacco or any other substance.
