About the Indicator: School disciplinary incidents involving tobacco were obtained by school district, then aggregated to the county level.  Percentages are found by totaling each county's tobacco-related incidents and dividing them by the total amount of disciplinary incidents for that county. Each incident is counted only once; if multiple reasons per incident were reported, only the most serious reason is counted.

The Minnesota Department of Education recommends each school district follow its own definitions in the discipline policy to address the possession, use, distribution or sale of tobacco products on school grounds, school-sponsored events and on transportation to and from school or other school transportation. More detail over what may be considered a tobacco product can be found at Minnesota Statutes Section 297F.01, Subd. 19
