LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky's largest public school district has gone smoke free on all campuses.
Jefferson County Public Schools enacted the regulation Monday, barring parents, visitors and employees from lighting up on any school property or in district vehicles.
The Jefferson County Board of Education approved the revision to the district policy, which had prohibited tobacco use or possession on campus or at school functions.
School superintendent Donna Hargens says the new policy will ensure adults will model a tobacco-free lifestyle. Hargens added that the tobacco free policy will mean students aren't exposed to secondhand smoke, a leading trigger of asthma attacks.
