Tobacco Use Prevention Education Programs
FCUSD's Tobacco Use Prevention Education (TUPE) Program activities are supported through a competitive grant application process that was awarded through the California Department of Education (CDE). This grant funding is a result of the Proposition 99 funds that are allocated to Tobacco prevention in schools. The purpose of the TUPE program is to reduce youth tobacco use by helping young people make healthful tobacco-related decisions through tobacco specific, research-validated educational instruction and activities that build knowledge as well as social skills and youth development assets. Collaboration with community-based tobacco control program is an integral part of program planning. The Program is designed to address prevention education, intervention, tobacco cessation and positive youth development in grades 6-12.
Our TUPE program is made possible by our parents, students, staff and community members. Your ongoing input is instrumental, if you would like to become more involved consider joining our School Health Advisory Meeting (SHAC). SHAC Homepage
