Preparing students to learn, grow, thrive and achieve life-long success

Tobacco Use Prevention Education (TUPE)

The California Department of Education has awarded a competitive grant to the Solano County Office of Education to support and implement tobacco use prevention programs for students in grades 6-12 in Solano County.

The three-year Tobacco Use Prevention Education (TUPE) grant program was developed by a collaborative group of students, school staff and community members. It is overseen by the Solano County Office of Education Prevention Education Services.

As part of the grant program, districts are required to fully enforce their Tobacco-Free Schools Policies, and renew their Tobacco Free Schools Certifications by June 2019.
