Resources for Schools

The most effective ways for schools to help address the youth vaping epidemic are:

  1. Offer an alternative-to-suspension (ATS) program for tobacco policy violations
     

  2. Offer evidence-based tobacco and vaping education to all middle & high school students
       

  3. Develop and implement non-punitive school policies that educate youth about tobacco and nicotine addiction and offer quitting resources designed specifically for teens
