The District maintains a drug/alcohol/tobacco/nicotine free environment for all District facilities, grounds, and vehicles. The policy includes the use of nicotine products that are not FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved for tobacco cessation. This requirement extends to students, employees, and visitors at all times. Persons failing to abide by this policy will be asked to extinguish their smoking material or dispose of the tobacco/nicotine product, or other product, or leave the District premises immediately.
The District has a comprehensive program that includes prevention education, school-based support teams, and an awareness program for District personnel on the signs and symptoms. Please see board policy 121, board policy 504.15, and AR504.15 for more information.
