E-cigarette use among high school and middle school aged students is being called an epidemic. The Department of Health said locally more than 40% of high school aged teens say they have tried vaping. Sarasota County School District officials hope through educating both students and parents about the dangers of vaping they can help solve the issue. The district has adopted a restorative and discipline program to educate students of the dangers of vaping and provide them with tips on how to quit.
