BIXBY, Okla. – As vaping illnesses and deaths continue to rise, an Oklahoma school district decided to tackle the problem before the school year started.
Last month, Bixby Public Schools launched a vaping awareness campaign.
According to KJRH, “if students are caught vaping, they could be suspended, or owe money if ticketed by a resource officer.”
Bixby resource officers have ticketed three high school students within the past few weeks.
“I feel like there’s a lot of people turning a blind eye, people not realizing that it is going on,” said student Kylie Criss. “They’re acting like it’s just not happening they’re kind of turning it away. But Bixby, I feel like everyone is actually aware of it and they’re not trying to hide the fact that it does happen. They’re just trying to deal with it.”
