Education Commissioner Terry Holliday, and William Hacker, commissioner of the Kentucky Department for Public Health, recently sent a letter to all Kentucky superintendents encouraging the passage and implementation of a 100 percent tobacco-free school policy. This letter exemplifies the partnership between health and education to help improve the health status of students, their families, school staff and community members.
For more information, contact Irene Centers with the Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Program; Victoria Greenwell with the Kentucky Department for Public Health’s Coordinated School Health; or Jamie Sparks with Kentucky Department of Education’s Coordinated School Health.
