TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – The Kansas State Board of Education met Tuesday for their monthly meeting. A large topic that was discussed was student vaping.
The board heard an update from the Vaping Task Force on what it has been doing to ensure students know vapes and e-cigarettes are dangerous to their health. The board also approved new anti-vaping signs.
“The more you can delay that use or prevent that use, the more likely it is that you’re going to keep people from a lifelong habit of nicotine addiction,” said Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) Task Force leader Mark Thompson.
