Grant to Educate about E-cigarette in Cambridge District
Cambridge School District receives a grant of £99,681.55 to educate students, teachers, and parents about the consequences of e-cigarette use.

According to a report by Daily-Jef, the school district in Cambridge, UK has received a grant of £99,681.55 named "Enhancing the Connection between Health and Safety". This two-year funding (for the academic years 2023-2024 and 2024-2025) will be utilized to assist students, teachers, parents, and the community in understanding the consequences of e-cigarette usage.


Rose Marie Daymut, the supervisor of the school district's federal program and 6-12 grade curriculum, stated, "E-cigarettes have emerged as a major disciplinary issue in our primary and secondary schools, with their impact extending to two elementary school buildings as well. When students engage in the use of e-cigarettes, it not only poses adverse effects on their physical well-being but also impairs their mental health and learning ability."


All applying districts and community schools will receive first or second level incentives based on factors such as poverty rate, chronic absenteeism rate, and other relevant data.


During his research on e-cigarettes, Damet discovered that there are very limited resources available in the community to provide education on this topic to families and students. They are now partnering with organizations, including the Guernsey County Juvenile Court, the Guernsey County Health Department, and others.


Students caught using e-cigarettes will not only face suspension from school, but also be required to participate in an e-cigarette education program designed to promote smoking cessation. Additionally, the school district will provide teachers and staff with educational materials, including the book "E-cigarette 101: A Q&A Guide for Teachers and Parents on the Dangers of Vaping," which addresses various concerns regarding the consequences of using e-cigarettes. Furthermore, e-cigarette detectors will be installed in both middle and high schools.
