The purpose of the TUPE program is to reduce youth tobacco use by helping young people make healthy tobacco-related decisions through tobacco-specific, research-validated educational instruction and activities that build knowledge
as well as social skills and youth development assets. TUPE funding originates from tobacco tax revenue and provides prevention programs in grades six through twelve.
The Orange County TUPE Consortium, led by the Orange County Department of Education, is a partnership of eight school districts collectively serving 40,318 students from 40 middle and high schools. Participating school districts are: OCDE ACCESS (Alternative Education Division), Fountain Valley School District, Huntington Beach City School District, Laguna Beach Unified School District, Ocean View School District, Saddleback Valley Unified School District, Santa Ana Unified School District and Westminster School District.
