References to vaping marked the changes in two sample policies.
“Changes made to sample policy AEA: Tobacco and Vaping Free Schools included a prohibition for vaping, as well as the prohibition of distribution or sale of tobacco or vaping products, and the policies title was changed to Tobacco and Vaping Free Schools,” ASBSD Director of Policy & Legal Services Jessica Filler said.
Filler added the amendment to sample policy JFC: Student Conduct added vaping product to the list of prohibited student conduct.
