Resources for Schools
The most effective ways for schools to help address the youth vaping epidemic are:
Offer an evidence-based tobacco education program to all middle & high school students.
Instead of suspension or expulsion for tobacco policy violations, develop and implement a policy that includes in-school suspension and requires students to complete an evidence-based education program about nicotine addiction and offers quitting resources to students.
