On November 29, 2016 the Board of Education approved Draft Policy 5131.62 No Smoking or Vaping for distribution to reference groups for input. 

The proposed revisions to this policy are required to reflect legislation from the Government of British Columbia that came into effect on September 1, 2016 regarding electronic cigarettes. During the review of this policy senior administration identified concerns regarding progressive discipline and other language within the existing policy. A working group consisting of elementary and secondary administrators was convened for review and to provide recommendations for the draft policy.  The draft policy was distributed to all elementary and secondary principals and vice-principals for review and input.
