On September 19, 2019, the BUSD Board of Education Adopted Resolution 11 which states that the Burbank Unified School District strongly supports any and all civic, social service, government agencies in their legislative efforts and campaigns that protect the health of our youth by preventing them from being exposed and addicted to nicotine and vaping products.
BPD AND BUSD WORK TOGETHER TO KEEP CAMPUSES DRUG FREE
BUSD and BPD are working together this year to keep our campuses drug free. BPD is supporting BUSD by utilizing its K-9 unit to check the grounds of our secondary campuses. This partnership is mutually beneficial as BPD is able to use the visits for additional training for its K-9 Unit. The department currently has two canines named Kimo and Bram. Both are Belgian Malinois.
Vaping Parent and Student Education Nights
On August 22 (BHS) and September 26 (JBHS), Student Services hosted parents and students for an educational forum on Vaping. Destination Teens and our Student Resource Officers from BPD discussed current trends, health concerns, assistance and support, and shared actual vaping paraphernalia and examples.
If you were unable to make either meeting, please feel free to view the Destination Teens presentation "No Quick Fixes". You can also find pictures of some of the vaping items that were shown by BPD by selecting the tab below.
