The purpose of Policy GBED is to establish the basic structure for a tobacco-free Charleston County School District. In short: The board believes that tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke (environmental tobacco smoke) are hazardous to the health of human beings, especially children. Therefore, the Board affirms that one of the best methods of instruction is one that is provided within a 100 percent tobacco-free environment. Smoking is not allowed on the grounds or in any buildings on the CCSD campus. This includes in your vehicles when parked on campus. All policies, in their entirety, may be found on the Charleston County School District website under the About US tab and in the Board of Trustees section.
