Local School Board Receives Recognition for Decreasing Tobacco Use Policy
September 18, 2020
On September 14, 2020, the Jackson County Decreasing Tobacco Use Workgroup recognized Medora Community School Corporation for having a comprehensive tobacco-use school board policy. The policy states “…tobacco, nicotine, and e-cigs in any form are prohibited by students, all school staff, parents, and visitors on school property, in school vehicles, and at school-sponsored functions away from the school property 24 hours per day.”
The Decreasing Tobacco Use Workgroup is a sub-group of Healthy Jackson County and is funded by a grant by the Indiana State Department of Health Tobacco Prevention & Cessation Commission with Schneck Medical Center as the county’s lead agency.

One deliverable of the grant the Decreasing Tobacco Use Workgroup received in 2019 is to assess which school districts within Jackson County have comprehensive tobacco use policies and then recognize those who do or provide guidance to those who do not. Regardless of the policy, the Workgroup aims to work with schools to reduce the impact nicotine and tobacco is having on Jackson County residents.
