Student Resources

Tobacco Use Prevention Education (TUPE)

Yolo County office of Education (YCOE) supports all of our districts in providing tobacco-free schools. Presently Winters Unified School District, Woodland Joint Unified School District, and Washington Unified School District are receiving funding to support Tobacco Use Prevention Education. YCOE works closely with each district to provide educational resources for students, parents and staff. Presently all districts are using the Stanford Tobacco Prevention Toolkit to educate students on the effects of vaping.
