School City of East Chicago
Bylaws & Policies


In order to protect students from an environment that might be harmful to them, the School Board prohibits the use and/or possession of tobacco by students in school buildings, on school grounds, on school buses, or participating in any school-related event.

For purposes of this policy, use of tobacco shall mean all uses of tobacco, including cigar, cigarette, pipe, snuff, or any other matter or substance that contains tobacco, as well as electronic, "vapor," or other substitute forms of cigarettes.

The administration of each school building will take appropriate action in cases involving students who use tobacco in violation of this policy.
