Today at County Council: Vaping in Schools

Vaping in Schools
The E&C Committee and HHS Committee will meet jointly to hear from representatives from the County’s Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) on vaping in schools. The purpose of the discussion is because of the rise in the number of young people who are using e-cigarettes, vaping devices or electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS). Many of these devices are hard to detect as they tend to look like computer thumb drives (USB), pen, or an item that students would commonly and appropriately carry. Those expected to attend include Dr. Travis Gayles, County health officer and chief of Public Health Services, DHHS; Dr. Jonathan T. Brice [Note Brice is busy looking for a job in other communities.], associate superintendent, Office of Student and Family Support and Engagement, MCPS; and Dr. Cara Grant, supervisor, pre-K – 12 Health and Physical Education, MCPS.
