Tobacco Use Prevention Education (TUPE)

Yolo County office of Education (YCOE)  provides technical assistance to all of our districts by providing tobacco-free schools. Three out of our five districts are part of the Tier 2 funding. This grant provides funding for the following districts: Winters Unified School District, Woodland Joint Unified School District, and Washington Unified School District. Each of these districts is receiving funding to support Tobacco Use Prevention Education for students, staff and parents. YCOE works closely with each district to provide educational resources. Presently all districts are using the Stanford Tobacco Prevention Toolkit to educate students on the effects of vaping.

  • Are there school supplies or tech products you don’t recognize in kids’ backpacks or rooms? How about small vials or eye dropper bottles?

  • Have you come across unfamiliar chargers, coils, or batteries?Juul and travel drive

  • Have there been changes in your kids’ behavior such as increased mood swings, irritability, anxiety, or impulsivity?

  • Are your kids suffering from more frequent headaches or nausea?
