School board discusses smoke-free policy

January 11, 2010

The Basehor-Linwood School Board has started talking about the possibility of establishing a policy that would make USD 458 a smoke-free district.

At the December school board meeting, three Basehor-Linwood High School students who were members of the group Bobcats Against Destructive Decisions (BADD) gave a presentation to the board members in favor of creating such a policy.

Monday night, the board talked about and chose to move forward with further research on the subject.

"I’m not a smoker, so as far as my comfort level, I enjoy a football game much more when smoke’s not coming in my face," board member Jeane Redmond said. "I think it would be a great step in the direction of becoming a healthier environment."
