In order to promote a tobacco-free environment in primary and secondary schools around Minnesota, the Public Health Law Center and the Start Noticing Coalition developed a comprehensive model K-12 tobacco-free policy. The model policy includes the following key components:
o Provides a definition of tobacco products to include current and future tobacco products.
o Prohibits the following items on campus (inside or outside) and at off-campus, school-sponsored events:
tobacco products and tobacco-related devices,
imitation tobacco products,
and electronic cigarettes.
o Prohibits accepting any donations or curriculum from any tobacco-related industry.
o Prohibits any promotion of tobacco products.
