Tyler ISD takes next step in combating vaping at schools

Tyler ISD is cracking down on vaping this year, making it clear to students that they can’t get away with vaping on school grounds. The district installed more than 70 vape detectors at all high school campuses and the Career & Technology Center ahead of the new school year. Additional vape detectors will be added to the middle schools this year, and vape detectors were included in the 2021 Bond for the new Hubbard Middle School and new Early College High School. The message is to let students know they will be caught if they vape at school facilities. The detectors can detect a variety of things, including vape smoke.
