SAVANNAH, Ga (WSAV) – School officials are clearing the air about e-cigarettes and JUULs.
The Surgeon General has declared a “youth epidemic,” and it is pushing school districts in the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry to toughen their stance on vaping.
“If a student comes on campus, or is riding a bus and is caught and has a device and paraphenelia or is caught using it, they’ll have to be addressed through the normal code of conduct process.”Captain Rob Rodriguez, SCCPSS
Most schools have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to vaping. It’s up to the school administrator to determine the severity of the offense and its consequence. The rules apply for kids smoking/vaping on school property or at any school-sponsored event.
