Tobacco Use Prevention Education (TUPE)

Trinity County office of Education (TCOE)  TUPE programs supports and provides technical assistance to all of our districts, and includes classroom-based substance abuse prevention programs, intervention and cessation services, and youth development activities, such as peer education.

  • The 1988 Tobacco Tax and Health Protection Act of (also known as Prop 99)
  • The 2016 CA Healthcare, Research, and Prevention Tobacco Tax Act (Prop56)
  • The 2021-2024 CA Department of Education Tier 1 Cohort Q Grant
Every Trinity County school district is receiving assistance to support Tobacco Use Prevention Education for students, staff and parents. TCOE works closely with each district to provide educational resources. Most of our school districts have a TUPE site coordinator and are using the Stanford Tobacco Prevention Toolkit and the Catch My Breath curriculum to educate students on the effects of vaping. The use of tobacco,
e-cigarettes (vaping), and marijuana is strictly prohibited on all campuses.

On the upside, maybe social distancing will help some kids quit??
