STUDENTS:

Administrators in all buildings will be responsible for communicating the consequences of the tobacco policy to their students.  Students will be made very well aware of the consequences of bringing tobacco to the school grounds and this will be strictly enforced.  Administrators will attach their regulations to this policy in their school’s policy manual.

In addition, the student will be issued a detention that should include a tobacco prevention education component.  The student will be given resources for available cessation programs.

Third Offense:  A written notice will be sent to the parent or legal guardian regarding the tobacco violation that shall be signed by the parent or legal guardian and returned to school.  The school administrator will hold a conference with the student who has violated the tobacco policy and the student will be referred to the school nurse and school counselor for further assessment.  The student will also be referred to the police with the confiscated material. The student’s record will be reviewed and acted on by administration to determine if suspension and/or community service is required.  A police report will be filed and processed for action.

STAFF:

Faculty and staff are included in provisions of the state law, which prohibits tobacco use on school property and school vehicles.  Those staff members violating this policy will be subject to disciplinary actions outlined in the employee manual.  These actions will also be attached to this policy in the school’s policy manual.  Any investigation into violations of this policy by staff will follow due process as outlined in the applicable union contract.


First Offense:  Written warning by the appropriate administrator.  In addition, staff members will also be given access to local smoking cessation program at district expense.

VISITORS:

Visitors must comply with the regulations set forth in this policy by the MSAD #60 School Board.  Smoking or the use of tobacco on school property by visitors is prohibited. This includes non-school hours and all functions, athletic or otherwise, that take place on school property.


Anyone found smoking or using tobacco products will be informed of the school tobacco-free policy and asked to refrain from use while on school property.  If the visitor does not comply, they will be asked to leave school property. If the visitor refuses to leave, law enforcement will be called.
