What is Tobacco Use Prevention Education (TUPE)?

  • TUPE is Chino Valley Unified School District’s tobacco education program to reduce tobacco use among students in Grades 6-12.
    TUPE Mission - The mission of Tobacco Use Prevention Education is to vigorously reduce the tobacco use among youths by:

    1. exposing tobacco industry tactics.
    2. creating a smoke-free environment at school and at home.
    3. providing smoking cessation workshops for students.
    4. using science-based, research-validated educational programs and strategies that address the four essential TUPE topics:
    • short and long term undesirable, physical, cosmetic, and social consequences or tobacco use
    • reasons adolescents say they smoke or use tobacco
    • peer norms and social influences that promote tobacco use
    • refusal skills for resisting social influences that promote tobacco use
