• Smoking Cessation

     

    Santa Ana Unified School District is a smoke-free facility/organization and we prohibit the use of tobacco products at all times.

    The Governing Board has established that all school property be tobacco free and prohibits the use of tobacco products at all times on school district property and in school district vehicles. This prohibition applies to all employees, students, visitors and other persons at any school or school-sponsored activity or event.

    The Governing Board recognizes the serious health risks presented by tobacco use and desires to provide support and assistance in the prevention and intervention of tobacco use among youth.

    Students shall not possess, smoke, or use tobacco or any product containing tobacco or nicotine while on campus, while attending school-sponsored activities, or while under the supervision and control of district employees.  Prohibited products include, but are not limited to, cigarettes, cigars, miniature cigars, clove cigarettes, smokeless tobacco, snuff, chew packets, and betel. (California Education Code 48900(h), 48901)

    Any employee or student who violates the district’s tobacco-free school policy shall be asked to refrain from smoking and shall be subject to disciplinary action as appropriate (SAUSD AR 3513. 3)
