We are happy to continue to provide resources that you can use to educate the school community about the importance of preventing students' tobacco and vape use and helping them quit if they are already using. The TUPE Office continues to encourage schools to avoid harsh disciplinary measures when dealing with students who are caught using tobacco products. We encourage administrators to take advantage of the
free Youth Vaping Alternative Program Education (YVAPE) program which will help you address tobacco-use violations in a manner that helps students dealing with addiction without harming academic achievement. Here's to a great year!
