Model Smoking Prevention Program (MSPP)

The Nevada County Superintendent of Schools TUPE Program will train and support all 6th grade teachers to implement the Model Smoking Prevention Program (MSPP) as well as additional anti-smoking activities and lessons. 

The Model Smoking Prevention Program (MSPP) is an evidence-based, comprehensive program proven to help prevent kids from using cigarettes, tobacco, and alternative tobacco products such as snuff, e-cigarettes, and hookahs.

MSPP consists of 8, 50-minute lessons.

Lesson activities include:

  • Cooperative Learning Groups
  • Group Discussions
  • Role Plays
  • Goal Setting

In addition, MSPP uses same-age peer leaders to facilitate many of the classroom activities.

The positive influence of peer leaders serves as a proactive prevention tool to help offset the peer pressure students face to start using tobacco and alternative tobacco products.
