Monterey County districts to receive tobacco prevention funds

Four school districts in Monterey County plus the office of education will receive almost $20,000 to support anti-tobacco education programs, the California Department of Education announced Monday.

Monterey County Office of Education 4,500
Pacific Grove Unified School District 4,500
Salinas Union High School District 4,500
Washington Union Elementary School District 1,332
North Monterey County Unified School District 4,500

Thirty school districts will share $410,826 in Tobacco Use Prevention Education, a three-year, $16 million initiative. The grants announced Monday comprise the first phase of funding for new applicants, and the 30 winners were selected because they had demonstrated the highest levels of involvement and commitment in their tobacco-use prevention efforts.
