Alcohol, Drug, and Tobacco-Free

The Bartlesville Public School District takes great pride in and intentional precautions to ensure that teachers, support employees, students, parents and school patrons have a safe and healthy environment in which to work. District policies support state and federal legislation that require the district to maintain an alcohol, drugs, and tobacco-free workplace.


Alcohol, Drug, and Tobacco-Free

The alcohol, drug and tobacco free policies are in effect twenty-four hours a day, seven day a week.

The alcohol, drug and tobacco free policies apply during the routine work day and at any school-sponsored or school-sanctioned event or activity, after school and during school holidays.

Tobacco Products of Concern Include

New products are constantly emerging, but generally tobacco and vapor products fall into three main categories:

  • Conventional combustible tobacco products

Conventional combustible tobacco products are lit and smoked, and they include cigarettes, cigars, little cigars, and cigarillos. Cigars, little cigars, and cigarillos are often sold individually or in small packages. These products are often low-priced and flavored like candy, making them especially attractive to younger students.

  • Smokeless tobacco products

Traditional smokeless tobacco products are chewed or snorted. They include chewing tobacco, moist snuff (also known as dip), snus, and nasal snuff. These products are used in different ways:

    • Chewing tobacco and snuff are placed in the mouth and eventually spit out.
    • Snus comes in what look like miniature tea bags. People will place snus in their mouth until it dissolves. No spitting is required.
    • As the name suggests, nasal snuff is inhaled through the nose.

Recently, smokeless tobacco has evolved and now may look like candy, breath strips, or toothpicks. Most of these smokeless tobacco products come in appealing flavors such as mint, wintergreen, berry, chocolate, cherry, and apple.

Common Tobacco Products of Concern

Three main categories (continued):

  • Vapor products

Vapor products (also known as electronic cigarettes, e-cigarettes, electronic nicotine delivery systems, e-cigars, e-cigarillos, e-pipes, e-hookahs, hookah pens, etc.) are battery operated devices, often designed to look like, and be used in a similar manner to, conventional tobacco products.

Users of vapor products inhale a vaporized liquid solution that may or may not contain nicotine. Because the liquid solution is converted into vapor, the use of electronic smoking devices is sometimes referred to as “vaping” rather than smoking.

Employees Are Role Models

  • Every adult Bartlesville Public School employee is a role model for our students and fellow co-workers.
  • A role model is someone another person admires and tries to be like.
  • When you communicate directly and demonstrate by example that you hold high standards, our students and your co-workers will notice.
  • When you serve as a role model, your actions directly impact how you perceive yourself and how others see you. You hold your head a little higher and you are intentionally more aware of your actions and how your actions are viewed by others.

Employees Are Role Models

  • Our students tell us that the people who have the greatest influence in their lives are their family and the people they see and interact with every day.
  • Our student also tell us that they admire people who demonstrate good citizenship, are good teachers; people who get involved and have time to help or explain and correct when needed.
  • It is your responsibility as an employee of the Bartlesville Public School District to be a role model and help keep our school environment alcohol, drugs and tobacco free.

Employee Assistance Program

  • The Bartlesville Public School District encourages all employees to intentionally monitor their use of alcohol, drugs and tobacco products. The District also encourages any employee who believes they are developing or have developed a dependency problem to seek professional assistance.

Employee Assistance Program

  • The Bartlesville Public School District offers an Employee Assistance Program through which an employee may ask for information about or help in overcoming a particular dependency problem. An employee who works with someone they believe is dependency prone or have a family member who is dependency prone may ask for help in overcoming their enabling behaviors.
  • An employee who asks for help will receive confidential counseling and may be referred, at the employee’s expense, to third party providers who offer dependency evaluation, counseling, treatment and rehabilitation services.

Employee Assistance Program

  • If you voluntarily choose to participate in the Employee Assistance Program, you will not jeopardize your job or promotional opportunities.
  • If you are referred to the Employee Assistance Program because of unsatisfactory job performance, participation in the Employee Assistance Program will not protect you from disciplinary action.
