School Board Policies on Smoking in the Schools. Educational Policies Development Kit.
National School Boards Association, Waterford, CT. Educational Policies Service.
This report provides school district policy samples and other resources on smoking in schools. The intent in providing policy samples is to encourage thinking in policy terms and to provide working papers that can be edited, modified, or adapted to meet local requirements. Note is made of the fact that in 12 states statutes prohibit minors from smoking on school property, and in other communities, that local fire ordinances take the decision away from the school board. Sample policy statements show that some boards prohibit smoking on school grounds altogether and provide penalties for infractions; others designate smoking areas or times when smoking is permitted; still others permit smoking, but deliberately restrict smoking areas available to students in order to discourage smoking. One school district requires parental permission for students to smoke in school and provides for informing parents when a student is found smoking who has not received parental permission. Most board policies require education programs on the dangers of smoking. (Author/JF)
