Code: KGC
Adopted: 8/13/97
Re-adopted: 2/28/07, 9/28/11

Tobacco Use, Distribution or Sale on District Premises by Public

Tobacco use, distribution or sale on district premises is prohibited.

It is the school’s obligation to protect the health, welfare and safety of students. In light of scientific evidence that the use of tobacco is hazardous to health, and to be consistent with district curriculum and Oregon law, use, distribution or sale of tobacco in any form on district premises or at school-sponsored activities is prohibited.

For the purpose of this policy “tobacco” is defined to include any lighted or unlighted cigarette, cigar, pipe, bidi, clove cigarette, and any other smoking product, spit tobacco, also known as smokeless, dip, chew, snuff, in any form, nicotine or nicotine delivering devices, chemicals or devices that produce the physical effect of nicotine substances or any other tobacco substitute (e.g., e-cigarettes). This does not include FDA approved nicotine replacement therapy products used for the purpose of cessation.

Tobacco use, distribution or sale by staff and all others is also prohibited on district premises, in any building, facility, or vehicle owned, leased, rented or chartered by the district, school, or public charter school and at all school sponsored activities on or off district property.
Violation of this policy by non-students may result in the individuals removal from district property. The district reserves the right to restrict access to district property by individuals who are repeat offenders.

This policy shall be enforced at all times. The superintendent will develop administrative regulations as needed to implement this policy.
