Tobacco Policy

 CONTACT

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) “Guidelines for School Health Programs to Prevent Tobacco Use and Addiction”, includes recommending that schools develop and enforce policies to prohibit tobacco use by students, staff, parents and visitors on school grounds; in school vehicles; and at all school-sponsored events, on or off school property. Other guidelines include cessation support for both students and staff and involvement of parents or families in supporting programs to prevent tobacco use.

Establishing a tobacco-free school environment demonstrates a commitment to helping students resist tobacco use and emphasizes the importance of adult role modeling.

Resources and assistance is available for schools implementing or enforcing tobacco free schools policy. For more information contact Kari Senger, or the regional Tobacco Control Program Coordinator in your area.
