Boone Co. Schools Campus Goes Tobacco-Free

No tobacco use of any kind will be allowed by staff, students or visitors.

(Boone County, Ky.) - Boone County Schools would like to welcome everyone to their tobacco-free campus. 

In 2019, the Kentucky legislature passed House Bill 11, a statewide 100 percent Tobacco Free School bill.

The bill prohibits tobacco use, including vaping products and alternative nicotine products , by staff, students and visitors 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The primary goals of these policies is to reduce exposure to secondhand smoke and encourage tobacco users to consume less of the addictive product.  

The more significant long-term effect of these policies, however, is to reduce youth tobacco use by reducing student exposure to tobacco use as an acceptable behavior by role models important to their development.
