916 – Tobacco Prohibited

No smoking or use of smokeless tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, will be permitted at any time in District buildings, on District grounds (including in private vehicles on District grounds), or in District-owned vehicles (regardless of the location of the vehicles). This prohibition applies to both school-sponsored and non-school-sponsored activities and notices to this effect will be displayed in all District buildings and vehicles. Additionally, no smoking or use of smokeless tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, shall be permitted in other locations used for school activities while the school activities are taking place.

It shall be the responsibility of all District personnel and visitors to abide by this policy and to enforce the policy. If, after being asked to abide by this policy, a visitor fails to comply, the visitor will be asked to leave District property or the school activity or event if held off District property. District personnel failing to abide by the policy shall be subject to disciplinary actions. Groups using school property who violate the policy may be refused future use of District property.
