Tobacco Use Prevention Grants – Year 2014 (CA Dept of Education)

SACRAMENTO—Work by educators to decrease smoking among students received a boost today as State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced 14 California school districts will share almost $17 million in tobacco-use prevention grants from the state.

The list of grantees for the total $16.6 million in Tobacco-Use Prevention Education (TUPE): Grades 6-12 Cohort J Tier 2 grants is attached.

“The safety and well-being of our students are at the heart of what we do as educators,”Torlakson said. “Leaders across California have made great strides in the fight against smoking, but the rise of e-cigarettes and other developments means that our work is far from over.”
