Cracking down on vaping

The Seminole County School District is looking to technology to help with the vaping problem on school campuses by installing vape-detecting devices in some schools and bathrooms.

The device will monitor air quality. If the air changes because a student is vaping, it sends a text or email to school administrators and it will alert them as to where the vaping its happening.

Rick Francis, Seminole County Sheriff’s Office school safety director says,”We’re not going to disclose what schools they’re in or what bathrooms, or what other areas of the school they’re in, but we are going to expect to have several at several schools.”

Any student found vaping will face consequences as well as go through a class that educates them as  to the health risks.
